“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” Oprah Winfrey

Photo Challenge: CELEBRATE LIFE

Photo Challenge: CELEBRATE LIFE

 

A simple celebration, a gathering of friends; here is wishing you great happiness, a joy that never ends. Zahid Abas
I’m a really, really optimistic and really, really positive person. My main thing is, ‘Enjoy life. Celebrate life.’ Luke Bryan
Each day holds a surprise. But only if we expect it can we see, hear, or feel it when it comes to us. Let’s not be afraid to receive each day’s surprise, whether it comes to us as sorrow or as joy It will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can welcome new friends and celebrate more fully our shared humanity. Henri Nouwen

Life is a Celebration, don’t let it pass you by. As promised, I’m continuing the photo challenges by looking through the 2013 archives. I was quite sick that year and spent time in and out of the hospital so it holds special meaning to me. Thank God I’m better now. The theme for June 7 2013 was Fleeting which is quite appropriate for the photos and thoughts I’m sharing here. Life is so fleeting that we should celebrate each moment we spend here and rejoice for every breath we take. So many of us wait and wait for all sorts of reasons; retirement, happiness, love, money and on and on … we forget to celebrate the good we have now. Please go out and join your friends and family and celebrate the life you have. It is precious.  Today, June 7, is Prince Roger Nelson’s and Swae Lee’s birthday. I love their music and creative spirit so I’m sharing their music with you. It’s also Susannah’s special day. She is a colleague and yoga enthusiast so I wish her much love too. Wish them and everyone you know a very Happy Birthday!❤
UPDATE: Happy June 8th Birthday blessings to one of my best friends, Diahann, to Kanye West and the hugely funny Joan Rivers.❤

 

“The most beautiful things are not associated with money; they are memories and moments. If you don’t celebrate those, they can pass you by.” Alek Wek

There is no success you can celebrate more than the success of a brother. Diego Luna
Celebrate life in all its glory – challenge yourself to let the routine sing, and the new dance. Maximillian Degenerez
We all have life storms, and when we get the rough times and we recover from them, we should celebrate that we got through it. No matter how bad it may seem, there’s always something beautiful that you can find. Mattie Stepanek

Time is fleeting. What are you waiting for? If not now, when? We often waste time on petty BS that we miss the special moments we can spend wishing each other well. Lift each other up. Power glide into your life and enjoy what you have. I think it is very important to celebrate your struggles, failures, and successes every day. Why? Because our struggles remind us to keep the faith. Our failures remind us to stay humble, and our successes inspire us and remind us to spread the joy and share our largess. Please lets all stop and show love to ourselves and others… and remember that even when the grass looks greener on the other side, envy is stupid, everyone is struggling with their own life challenges. Compassion and genuine concern are imperative.

Suicide Is an Epidemic. Celebrate Life by Encouraging those in Need of Mental Health Support: Given the events of the last several days, I cannot remain quiet on a topic that is stigmatized in societies across the globe. As many of you might know, fashion designer, Kate Spade, and Food connoisseur/writer/documentarian, Anthony Bourdain, died from suicide this week. Suicide is a subject that impacts all of us either directly or indirectly, and the underlying mental health issues that lead so many down that road persists. As a member of the blogging community, I’ve written about the loss of a young man who was a son to me, and about my own struggle. Many others in our community have written about it too.  Depression and the many other manifestations of mental health conditions affect so many and it has nothing to do with being weak minded, selfish or self serving as some insensitive, thoughtless jerks have purported on the internet. It is NOT a character defect. It is real and those who suffer are like YOU and ME. Some of the most brilliant minds and talented folks have suffered through that black hole and, sadly, some couldn’t avoid falling into that dark hole and taking their own life to end the pain. My heart goes out to the friends and families of all who have lost a loved one to suicide.

If you, or someone you know, is in suicidal crisis or emotional distress please call the LIFELINE at 1-800-273-TALK (8255)*  You can also get Help via NSPL. and you can learn more from The ColumbiaSuicide Severity Rating Scale.

Photo Challenge: CELEBRATE LIFE

We think there is endless time to live but we never know which moment is last. So share, care, love, and celebrate every moment of life. Anonymous
Anniversaries are like birthdays: occasions to celebrate and to think ahead, usually among friends with whom one shares not only the past but also the future. Zbigniew Brzezinski
I feel like our culture is so good at pulling other people down and being so judgmental, but there’s space for all of us to be who we are. There’s space for us to celebrate each other and root for each other and not take each other down. Tracee Ellis Ross

Celebrate your struggles, failures and successes every day. I’ve been on a fast this week and with it has come some clarity about my life and also insights about my inner chatter. It’s fascinating how much chatter goes on inside our heads and how they impact the life we live in the world. A great teacher of mine used to say that we should make friends with our mind because it has tremendous power and energy that could be both constructive and destructive. The more we focus on good, the more we experience it. The more we focus on things that don’t elevate us, the more we have that experience too. Of course, from a philosophical standpoint, I get that we live in a world that is a balance of good and evil and we need both to understand and appreciate the good. Perhaps, we can put more energy into the hard work of making the most of our talents and gifts and share them without fear of reprisals. That said, I love the beat above. Life is hard work and I woke up hearing the refrain in my head; it gave me good food for thought… more later

 

This post was inspired by a June 7 2013 prompt from WP Daily Post: – FLEETING – SHARE A PICTURE THAT MEANS FLEETING TO YOU. Some ideas to get you started: Observing nature and capturing a quiet, special moment. Experimenting with shots of movement.Taking a snapshot of someone deep in thought (or alternatively, in mid-action). Exploring a place that’s transient in nature (airports, stations, streets, etc.). We think this theme is open to many interpretations and look forward to seeing what you come up with. and Writing Challenge: RSVP Plan the ultimate celebration for the person you’re closest to, and tell us about it. Where is it? Who’s there? What’s served? What happens?

 

Positive Motivation Tip: Celebrate the life you have now. Don’t waste time dreaming about the past or what might be. Start the delightful celebrations of your life now.

    I love the photo’s as always and today the music. I hear that the time is fleeting, it’s going by at an outrageous speed. I must do something before the lord calls me home and I have spent the last half of my life inside. Tomorrow I will go outside, even though it will only be to my porch it will be outside for the first time in months. That I will celebrate.

    It is so important to celebrate life, to remain positive in times of struggle. Life goes by so quickly , we need to appreciate it and all it has to offer. Such gorgeous pictures.

    Our family has been plagued by illness since day 1 this year. It just saddens me that we have to deal with this. My mom, my husband, my sister, my niece were all admitted to the hospital within the first 11 weeks of this year! Since then, I always make time to be with them, ask them how they are, and just enjoy every bit of smiles and laughter with them. Praying that the remainder of this year will see them recovering from their illnesses.

    We should all be grateful for our lives and we should all rejoice and appreciate our lives and be grateful for it.

    I love this sentiment. I’m trying at the moment to be more present, mindful and grateful for my life now, rather than worrying about the future

    I often spend too much time planning for the future or waxing nostalgic about the past. I am trying hard to live more in the moment and enjoy the life I have right now!

    It is so true that so many of us seem to focus on the negatives and get caught up in what went wrong in the day, rather than what went right and what we have to be thankful for. If more of us focused on the positives, that outlook would by its very nature, attract more positives and we would end up being happier as a result. If only more people realised this, what a much nicer world it would be – and therefore it really is up to each one of us to do our bit to be positive and celebrate life.

    Everyday i’m trying to live life to the fullest. Very similar to this quote, “Celebrate the life you have now. Don’t waste time dreaming about the past or what might be. Start the delightful celebrations of your life now.”

    I always make it a point to appreciate all the little things around me. When I was young, I chased after the big stuff, but now that I am older (and a bit wiser), I learned that happiness is in the small things – a single tiny flower growing between the cracks in the concrete, a light rain, a “not so perfect” looking cake, etc. Thanks for the reminder to celebrate life. We’ve only got one to live and we must make the most out of it.

    I do love this post encouraging us to celebrate life no matter how circumstances are, no matter how hard it is and no matter how heavy the problem you are facing right now. We should choose to celebrate instead of murmuring and whining because God gave this life for us not for suffering but for us to celebrate it with Him.

    It’s easy to get caught up in the past (depression) and the future (anxiety) when the only moment we really have is right. now. this. moment. It sounds so simple but can be the hardest thing to stay present. Thanks for the reminder!

    I enjoyed this post. The Jimi Hendricks song is one of my favorites. When you wrote “I think it is very important to celebrate your struggles, failures, and successes every day, ” the quote is very inspiring.

    Prince’s song is such a nice touch at the beginning of the post. I always appreciate your articles because they make me stop and think about important topics.
    “Celebrate your struggles, failures and successes every day.” is such an important lesson in life.

    “Celebrate each day as if it’s your last” is what I’m taking away from your very inspirational post. I love all the quotes especially from Henri Nouwen. I know I have not been very social lately and I need to change that.
