The ABC's of Life...C is for Celebrate

"Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey." ~Barbara Hoffman

"The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate." ~Oprah Winfrey

"Celebrate what you want to see more of." ~Thomas J. Peters

Celebrate life! Have fun celebrating the "big" things (like birthdays and graduations), but don't forget to rejoice in the simple, little things in life too. This is something that we all know we should do...yet it's sometimes easy to forget when we get busy with our day to day lives. Take the time to observe, notice and celebrate...

sunsets and rainbows
finding a beautiful seashell on the beach
hugs from your kids (especially when they're teenagers)
selling a piece of your art (even if it's only a $2.00 note card)
taking a walk or going to exercise class (when you really, really don't feel like it)
a good night's sleep
organizing a junk drawer or a closet
a sunny day
the butterfly that lands on a flower (just as you're getting ready to take a picture)
bumping into an old friend
the kindness of strangers
hearing your favorite song on the radio
finding a four leaf clover

Celebrate the simple!
