Celebrate Today and Every Day!

The month of May is always a month of celebration and personal milestones for me.  May opens up with the recognition that I am blessed to have my husband and three children shower me with love on Mother's Day. Shortly after Mother's Day, I celebrate my birthday on May 16th.  This year I am celebrating 56 years of life, good health, and a cadre of family and friends to share life’s joys and sorrows.

 

In 56 years, I have learned to celebrate every day that God gives.  I’ve learned how to authentically celebrate myself and others by eliminating issues that have the potential to cloud my vision or hinder my ability to appreciate all that life brings.

Here are some common enemies of celebration that one must overcome in order to embrace life in totality:

  • Negative Thinking

  • Self-Defeating Beliefs

  • Self-Imposed Limitations

  • Lack of Self-Confidence

  • Comparing Ourselves to Others

  • Envy, Gossip and Jealousy

On the other hand, our perspective of life is enhanced when we:

  • Change Our Vision of Beauty

  • Get in Touch with Our Values

  • Stop Comparing Our Lives to Others

  • Resolve Unmet Needs, Unhealed Hurts, and Unresolved Issues

  • Learn to Be Satisfied


  • Avoid Negative Thoughts and Conversations

  • Compliment Others

  • Find Our Circle of Friends


  • Throw A Party for Ourselves and Others

Every day we are alive is a reason for celebration. You don’t have to wait for a milestone birthday, a child’s graduation, a wedding, a job opportunity, a new car, a new house, or a new baby to be born. Make a commitment to celebrate today and every day!
