100 Happy Days: Day 88 – Celebrate

Solving puzzles encourages spontaneous celebration


We are good at celebrating the big stuff —
weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, Christmas…
We give presents.
We gather.
We participate in rituals.
We often also eat good food and listen to good music.


Celebrating milestones
uplifts our spirits,
warms our hearts, and
nurtures our optimism.


Imagine what our days would be like if
we celebrated the little stuff too —
a brief pause to notice and cultivate
the expansiveness we feel in
those ordinary everyday accomplishments.


Today I choose
to spontaneously celebrate little moments.
Today I choose
to be grateful for ordinary things going well.
Today I choose to celebrate every day.
