Word Of the Week #549: Celebrate

February 12, 2015 by  

Celebrateto observe an occasion with appropriate ceremony or festivity.

When was the last time you celebrated something? What festivities did you engage in this week? How about the last month?

Today is my birthday so I am celebrating and taking the day off. This week’s WOW is a rerun (from over two years ago) from one of my long time speaker friends Scott Friedman who lives in Colorado.

“The movie theatre shootings in Aurora, Colorado this past week remind us how fragile life really is. How do we deal with such a tragedy?

We celebrate life’s many blessings every chance we get. We live more vibrantly, more intentionally, more lovingly. We practice random acts of kindness and beauty.

We play harder and longer. We give more hugs. We don’t wait to say, “thank you”, “I love you” or “I truly care.”

We dine with gratitude, we listen to music with greater appreciation, and we live with compassion. We take greater pride in our communities, countries, and citizens!

We recognize that the quality of life is determined by the quality of our relationships so we cherish those in our lives and remember never to take them for granted. As Luciano de Crescenzo said, “We are all angels but with only one wing, and only by embracing each other, we fly! Let’s fly higher and more united than ever before! Let’s celebrate life!”

This week’s focus is on celebrating. How is your quality of life? When was the last time you practiced a random act of kindness? Who needs a big hug from you? Are you living more vibrantly, more intentionally, more lovingly?

And I am spending my special day celebrating with the love of my life and having FUN!
