How to Celebrate Life
By Lynn Bradley
You only have one life so make it a celebration. Celebrate life by looking on the bright side. Both good and bad exist in the world. Dwell on the good so it will dominate your life. Negative thoughts, pessimism, worry and anxiety can only lead to misery and failure. Avoid them at all cost. Be optimistic, think positive thoughts, count your blessings.
Do not let failure get you down. It is just a bump in the road. Learn from your mistakes and try again. Do not waste your time thinking of the unpleasant things. Concentrate on the beauty of life. Enjoy the sunshine and the happy moments. Be thankful for the rain that brings the flowers and food from the gardens and fields. Build memories with friends and loved ones.
Celebrate life by discovering your talents. Do what you have a passion for. Get paid for what you love to do. It will not seem like work, but play. Avoid heated arguments. Life is too short for such unpleasant encounters.
Do not worry when others disagree with you. It is natural to have different opinions. Do what you do and let them do what they do. Be nice to those who are sometimes unpleasant, with bad moods and tempers. They are unconsciously begging for help. A kind word and a smile can change their day.
Show others how to shake off the blues and celebrate life. Your smiles can turn their frowns upside down. Pleasant moods are catching. You can make a difference in their life.
Do not be hard on yourself when you make mistakes. You are only human. You are stuck with yourself, so make it as pleasant as possible. Live in harmony with everyone. Avoid conflicts with those who are hard to get along with. Do not judge them. Do not be concerned because you are not as good looking or successful as others. Be content with what God made you to be.
Celebrate your successes and relationships with special friends. Celebration does not need to be with alcohol or drugs. A good Life is the only stimulant you need. You do not need a hangover. You just need a clear head and a joyous experience. Celebrate your health and your love life. Be faithful to your spouse and celebrate your life together.
When you get down in the dumps and start to feel sorry for yourself, do something that you enjoy. Go to a movie, play your favorite game, have lunch with a friend, or do something for someone. Helping others with their burdens gives you the feeling that you have more than enough. You do not have time for pity parties. You have a life to celebrate.
