Life is full of good things. Take the time to celebrate.
Celebrate with your loved one – plan special days where you spend time together doing fun things. Rob and I schedule “our days” twice a month and on those days, we may go to the museum, a park, a movie, a play, or something else that we never seem to find time for with out regular day to day schedules.
Celebrate friendships – a lunch or a drink together – plan times to keep the friendship alive and happy. I have a small group of women that meet once a month to talk about our wins and goals. I also love to give a couple of parties each year so that I can bring together a bunch of good friends.
Celebrate birthdays – anything from a long phone call to a full out party. I feel that birth days are important and should be recognized. Some years it may be a big celebration and other years something smaller and more personal.
Celebrate the completion of a project – instead of rushing on to the next thing that must be done, take a few minutes to congratulate yourself on a job well done and celebrate. Take a walk, enjoy a cup of tea, take some down time on the deck.
Celebrate sunsets or sunrises – get outside with a favorite beverage and just soak up the splendor.
Sometimes when things seem the toughest, it is so wonderful to reflect on the wonderful day to day occurrences and just celebrate!
