“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate” - Oprah Winfrey
Celebrating allows us to mark an occasion or moment in a significant way. As children we celebrate birthdays and holidays with joy but as we get older and life becomes more serious, we tend to overlook the importance of celebration.
Across all societies, the rituals and traditions associated with celebrating brings people together. It helps us to create lasting, fond memories as well as adding fun and excitement to our lives.
It’s also important to celebrate the small stuff as well. Your life is significant and that means every moment in it is special. When you allow yourself to focus on the positive in your life and appreciate those special moments, you become happier and more grateful.
Some people feel embarrassed to celebrate important milestones and successes in their lives - professional or personal - which is quite sad because when we honour our accomplishments, we honour life.
