Some days are made for celebrating: celebrating independence, celebrating love, celebrating terrible green beer. But what do we do the day after? Why not celebrate some more?
A Reason to Celebrate
Celebration is really akin to thanksgiving. After all, something has happened that had a major positive effect on our lives. We celebrate to show how much that means to us. There’s really not too much distance between that and showing appreciation for it.
And that’s when things can become better. Because happiness and thankfulness often go hand in hand.
A Daily Ritual
So why not make this a part of your ritual, each and every day: simply have your own mini-celebration about your day. Find 5 things that you are thankful for. Be thankful. If you doubt the benefit, give it a try; I believe you’ll find great value in it.
It’s really easy to find things to be thankful for. Be thankful for running water. Not only did so many of our ancestors not have it, many people don’t have it today. Be thankful for the flat tire you had, because it reminded you how many days you didn’t have to deal with the frustration you did on a single day. Be thankful for learning, because it helps you grow.
Start Celebrating Today
It really is easy to do. Just think of five things to be thankful for when your day starts or just before it ends. Look at the world through what you have. You will begin to see all the wonderful things you have to be thankful for. And that’s cause for celebration.
