You carry the passport to your own happiness.

Diane Von Furstenberg

Do something that makes you happy today!

If you have just a little fun today, it's a sign that maybe the future
    will hold even more fun for you. Fun isn't just fun - it's hope. 

 Linda Richman 

I like to think of myself as an active participant in life and believe that even the smallest moments are worthy of celebration.   I can rejoice in the times I took the high road in a conflict, the moments I chose love over a compulsion to be seen as right.  There are times I choose to applaud the time I asked for needed help and actually received it. Other times I might elect to honor the moment I mustered the courage to speak my truth.

There is always something to celebrate.  Every moment of life is a gift.

Celebrate the fact that you are alive. Take a few moments every morning to simply enjoy a few minutes over a cup of coffee or tea and breathe in the aroma, feel the warmth, and enjoy the comfort. Give thanks for the day that is coming your way. When you begin your day with a sense of gratitude and celebration, you are bound to have more joy for the rest of the day.

To celebrate life on a daily basis is a way to develop an attitude of gratitude that can literally transform our outlook on life and our ability to more deeply enjoy what we already have.

Remember: Celebration is an attitude 

Happiness is a grateful spirit, an optimistic attitude, and a heart full of love.

That is so true that celebration is an attitude. Good too to take a few minutes at the start of the day to be grateful for the fact we woke up to a fresh new day.

If we look hard enough, yes. There is always a reason to celebrate, to applaud ourselves and one another.


i agree celebrating life puts you on the plus side. "Fun isn't just fun - it's hope."
