Special days such as birthdays or holidays are wonderful times to plan a celebration. But, once in a while, we can take time during the course of our daily routines to plan a mini celebration. It doesn’t have to be anything special. We can simply celebrate life — the joys and sorrows, the ups and downs, and the normal routines we regularly experience.
Celebrations don’t have to be elaborate. Taking ourselves to a movie, or out to eat, or cooking our favorite food — the little things that bring a smile to our faces. Other ways to celebrate are to look through old photos or recall special times like vacations, or life passages. We stop to remember that life is more than the humdrum of routine. We celebrate the moments that remain bright in our memories, but also the ones that remain dim in our memories because all of these events are part of our lives.
Life is an adventure — an amusement ride of colossal proportions. Let’s not wait until the ride is over before we enjoy it. Let’s relish each and every twist of the track, each upside-down flip, and the high-banked turns. The ride will end soon enough, and when it does, we’ll wish we had realized it was only a ride, relaxed more, and celebrated each moment of the trip.
