This post marks the 100th post for this blog and clocking over 200,000 viewers at the commencement of this year. Its quite thrilling to look back to 6 years and 29 days ago when Grace & Poise was born. Established with humble beginnings I am awed at how far this blog has grown and blossomed into what it is today.
Recently, I’ve been pondering why we oftentimes what until an important occasion arises before we begin to celebrate? Why are we inclined to wait until February the 14th to share our love with that special someone? Why wait until the Christmas season to be festive, bring the family together and share gifts? Why wait until your birth-date to celebrate another year? Does every momentous event in life need to wait until the date of completion or the time traditionally specified?
I believe that everyday is a celebration: the dawn of a new day or the love we share with a family member. A celebration need not to be an expensive bash, it may be pouring a glass of bubbly on a Friday evening to celebrate the week’s end. Or perhaps a stroll down the market on a weekend to celebrate the chance to enjoy life.
The following are some acts of celebration that you may do either consciously or subconsciously, that provide instant cheer and joy into everyday living:
Task complete! Be it a large project that has taken months to complete or a small chore you’ve been putting of for too long completed in an hour, its time to celebrate. There is no better feeling than that of accomplishment.
A smile from a stranger. You know that tingly feeling you get by flashing a smile at a stranger and you get one back?
Inspiration is all around us. With the latest gadgets and technology surrounding us daily we are continually surrounded by objects of inspiration. Be it music that fills the air, a photo that reminds us that we are loved, an funny line that makes us smile…
Sharing a story. We all can relive the excitement of experiencing something truly exquisite and the thrill of anticipation to tell others the story!
The arrival of Friday afternoon. There is no better feeling than knockoff time, Friday 5pm with 48 hours of pure freedom ahead!
A future awaits. Is there a more promising situation than having a future spread out before you, untouched and unmarked. Its yours to create and shape! What a cause for celebration, indeed!
Celebrate your goals and different achievements as it is those moments that will never come again.
What have you celebrated today?
