Celebrate in your life


Celebration is a challenge at the moment, however feeling grateful for me is not. I wonder why one feel so much harder than the other. Maybe because celebration is an intense, excited, exuberant emotion that feels out of place at this moment in time. Celebrations are for good time, great times, hanging out with friends and family, laughing and feeling gleeful. ⁣

So trying to focus on what gives me this feeling is certainly a challenge. It certainly has me reflecting on celebrations that I’ve been involved in and attended in the past and I again feel so grateful for those memories.⁣

However perhaps celebrating can be quiet too, maybe a reflection on achievements that usually go unnoticed, the ones that you accomplish when no one sees it?

Maybe getting out of bed when you don’t fee like it is a celebration, or your child remembering their morning jobs is a celebration, or you taking the time to pay attention to how intentional your parenting is being, is also a celebration.⁣

So today I’m thinking about things such as putting one foot in front of the other, ticking things of my to-do lists, prioritising my health and making sure I take time to connect with my family members- as my small, but significant celebrations. ⁣

What things can you celebrate in your life right now and are you paying attention to your achievements?
