Sure, we celebrate our birthdays and the most important holidays, in times where we meet our family and friends just to talk and laugh and feel that feeling of something bigger. But have you ever considered the impacts of celebrating the mundane and small things from our day-to-day lives?
What Is A Celebration?
🎊 Celebration is a subjective thing, that reflects our likes and dislikes: you can buy something you've wanted for a long time, or you can take yourself to watch a movie, or even drink a glass of wine.Celebrating is recognizing yourself and your effort, your wins, and your strength, and realizing how far you have come, and what you have already accomplished. You don't have to wait until you graduate to celebrate, for example, but you can acknowledge how you are to your studies and the small results you get from it along the way - it's celebrating you and what you do in your routine, without the need of something bigger.
Why Do We Celebrate?
Celebration is something that translates our feeling and the feeling of our loved ones towards aspects of our lives. We celebrate birthdays to acknowledge someone's impact in others' lives, as well as to congratulate that person
for what they've accomplished, and just for being. But we don't actually need big occasions to recognize our wins. In a life full of routines, studies and work, to get the time to stop and just reward yourself for existing
can offer gratitude for what you have now and for how hard you've worked so far to be where you are.
Besides that, celebration brings some benefits:
- reuniting with people you love can make you feel happier;
- doing something you like can make you enjoy your journey better;
- buying something for yourself can make you feel great;
- having fun is the best for your mental health;
- you have the opportunity to deepen your bonds with family and friends.
🎉By celebrating, you know your journey has meaning!
How To Celebrate?
Celebrating is all about the things you enjoy doing, the things that make you feel good and happy. So maybe you can go out with your friends or family, or you can do something you've wanted for a long time. The most important thing to keep in mind is that the act of celebrating has its basis on your emotions: plan something that will make you feel accomplished and grateful, that will make you thankful for what you've done for yourself.
Your Journey Has Meaning!
No matter what journey you're on, know that, if it means something to you, you certainly deserve to be celebrated. If it's not the end of the process yet, it doesn't matter, because you're learning so much already. Celebrate the journey, the small wins, the mundane, and enjoy yourself!
