When was the last time you celebrated?
How to adopt an attitude of gratitude
“As a child, life was more carefree. You had less inhibitions, were more daring and took more risks — you had nothing to lose. As an adult, you have everything to lose, or so you think.”
When was the last time you celebrated like crazy? How about this: when was the last time you celebrated for no reason at all? More than likely, you haven’t. That’s because as we age, we adopt more responsibilities and forget to celebrate the little things in life. As a child, life was more carefree. You had less inhibitions, were more daring and took more risks — you had nothing to lose. As an adult, you have everything to lose, or so you think.
Celebration becomes sparse and you easily get stuck in life instead of living it. Celebration is something you preserve for times you’re rooting for your favorite team or celebrating someone’s birthday — it’s only allowed into very specific time frames in our lives and if we’re not in that junction, we don’t celebrate.
But the truth is, you don’t need a specific event or time to celebrate anything. You can celebrate the smallest things, celebrate that you’re even alive! And it has its benefits. Celebration releases stress, it lifts your mood, motivates you, and lastly, it gives you energy. Not only physically, but it gives you energy for life!
When you adopt an attitude of gratitude celebrating for no good reason, is a good enough reason. And if you rejoice with life, it will rejoice with you — it’s when you have this attitude, that more good comes to you.
