Part of living deeply is celebrating. Sometimes, when our lives get too busy, too crowded, we forget to celebrate, or how important the act of celebration is. When we celebrate we are actively giving thanks for something or someone. Just how being thankful can transform your life, celebrating the things or people you value add a layer of sweetness to your life.
I found this tutorial on Pinterest. Whether it’s a great dentist visit or a beautiful day, this board reminds you to take the time to relish the small victories in life.
With every celebration, you must set the stage. This felt “celebrate” banner from Von Maur is colorful and long lasting. Putting this up when a great progress report comes home signals a great party is coming up.And every celebration needs a special drink to toast with. These are perfect for the kids. They’re so darn cute, mom may partake too.
Whether you’re celebrating a made bed, clean room, completed project or Tuesday, recognizing and giving thanks for the event will provide a smile to your face and a memory in your heart.
(I really did just write that last line. I know it’s so cheesy, but seriously, the more I do this, the cheesier I get – and it’s in a good way. I promise.)
