Chapter 9, Page 27, Book 19

Start living now.  Stop saving the good china for that special occasion.  Stop withholding your love until that special person materializes.  Every day you are alive is a special occasion.  

Mary Manin Morissey

September 27th - celebrate every day

Each day offers us the gift of being alive , a special occassion, if we can simply learn that it is blessing to receive with grace and a grateful heart. Today should be our most wonderful day!

Start your day as a celebration. Celebrate the fact that you are living.  Give thanks for the day that is coming your way.  When you begin your day with a sense of gratitude and celebrations, you are bound to have more joy for the rest of the day.

Start noticing all the awesome things you do on a daily basis,  it will improve our moods and self esteems.  

Start taking notice of the little things others do, and thank them .  Our gratitude will make them feel like they are appreiated and helps us to feel great too.  

The more you celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate !

Oprah Winfrey

Sometimes our celebration will be a moment of acknowledgment, while other times  we take ourselves out for a meal with friends or even a weekend get a way.  We may not have the opportunity to celebrate big all the time but it is good every now and then.

Remember, celebration is an attitude .  Let us all inspire each other to celebrate our every day lives a little more! Life is short, start using the good stuff every day. Make  an extra effort to create more special moments in life .  

Instead of carefully preserving family heirlooms, create some new memories around those treasured pieces with your family.

Life is made up of moments.  You can sit back and wait for them to happen or you can choose to create more moments of your own.  Dont wait for a special occasions  that may or may not ever happen to use the good stuff.  Just being alive makes today special.

Celebrate who you are in your deepest heart.  Love yourselves and world will love you.

So true to get out and live and use those special plates not just for special occasions but make each day a special day!

We rarely have dinner guests any more, but I still bring the china out for my hubby and me every now and then. After all, he's my most "special" person.

As for our heirlooms, unfortunately, none of our children want any of our treasures. Well, they're treasures to us, anyway. Things like the special one-of-a-kind plates and platters that belonged to my grandmother or an old pocket watch that belonged to my husband's grandfather have no sentimental value to them.

Great advice! More often than not, little things wind up as big memories.
