Life is full of ups and downs, even the daily news that we see on TV is usually full of bad news. If we only focused on the depressing stuff then we might as well give up - right? This is why I believe that it's important to find ways lift our spirits, to focus on the positives, to be inspired and to see the beautiful things and moments in life.
If you agree with these sentiments then you have come to the right place. This website is about celebrating the good things and moments in life.
Reasons to celebrate (this is not an exhaustive list):
You don't necessarily have to celebrate big events or special occasions only. Life is about moments, even the smallest ones. Too often we loose sight of the small things, and it's the small things that can help us live life to the fullest. In this respect, life itself can be a celebration. We can celebrate small simple things which don't involve the giving or receiving of presents or involve having a party and you don't have to spend money if you don't need to or want to. Often we celebrate and we do not even realise that we are doing it.
We can celebrate by: simply giving thanks, saying a prayer, singing a song, jumping for joy, doing a dance around the room, allowing ourselves a tasty treat, having a glass of wine... etc
To always be grateful and upbeat does not mean that we do not experience or acknowledge unpleasant or bad things, it simply means that we are aware of our blessings and the positive things in our life. Even a negative experience or occasion like the loss of job can be turned into a positive experience because, when one door closes another one opens. This mentality can reduce stress levels and help us bounce back more quickly from adversity and increase our well-being.
So, Let's see life from a different perspective, Let's be inspired, Let's get creative, Let's do what make us feel good, Let's Celebrate!
