And those are all great things to celebrate – but what about all the small things that make up our days, our weeks, our lives – all the small things that make our hearts bust in excitement – but we don’t celebrate them because we don’t feel they are “big enough” for celebration?
A Psalm for Thanksgiving. Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth.
It doesn’t say only for big things.
I have started then stopped, started then stopped, started – you get it – keeping a gratitude journal. I want to turn this into a celebration journal too. Write down my small victories to celebrate daily – no that doesn’t mean celebrate with a glass of wine and cupcake (not anymore at least)
Just celebrate – say it out loud that I am proud of something I did, recognize any and all achievements.
Celebrate with y’all, with Eric, my friends, family, strangers – who ever.
I have gotten better celebrating my NED (NO evidence of disease) status – when someone asks me how I am – without missing a beat I almost shout – wonderfully great. Still NED, still feeling great! I no longer have a but, not sure, eh in there – there is no room for that with NED!
I need to get better at celebrating my small victories with life, home life, business.
I think I should celebrate the nights I cook dinner; when all the laundry is done; when I have 6 orders waiting for me to get out; when Ian helps me clean up his stuff – it is these things that are life and should be celebrated.
What can you celebrate today – big or small??
