Gratitude and Joy

Day 41 – A Year of Gratitude and Joy – Celebrations

In the heart of winter, skies cloud over, cooler temps come to the Valley of the Sun and I look for reasons to celebrate anything, grateful for even the silliest reason.

I subscribe to the National Day Calendar and receive daily emails giving me a one-day heads up to lay on provisions for a personal celebration. Recently, I heated the kettle and raised a steaming cup in celebration of National Hot Chocolate Day. 

Warm, chocolatey and delicious!

A few years ago, a friend was accepted into an international scientific fellowship of nearly 100 women that included an Antarctic expedition.  I thought it would be fun to send her a care package with an envelope a day announcing something to celebrate each day. It was my hope she could share it with her fellow shipmates for a moment of levity each day. It was a hit and they sent me a fun thank you note at the end of the cruise. 

Celebration and laughter and gratitude.

I’ve blogged about celebrations, so it should be no surprise they bring me joy. The fun is, everyone can celebrate something. Don’t save that bottle of bubbly for your birthday – celebrate February 5th … it, too, only comes once a year.

Cheers to celebrations.

A quick preview of the coming week offers these options:

Choose your day next week … or celebrate every day!

There’s a whole world out there just waiting to be explored. Celebrate everything!

  1. I love this way of thinking. Everyone should find at least one thing to celebrate each day as it gives us hope, a goal and something to look forward to. People looking for something to celebrate will surely be more positive!

  2. I think Cheese Doodle Day was the biggest hit for the international women. Also, “doodle” means something else in Australia…
