Surprising that half the year has passed, and it's time to celebrate America with July 4th festivities. From BBQs with family and friends, to watching fireworks, to remembering those who fought for freedom, it's a chance to enjoy our summer.
One thing that celebrating offers is a lightening of our spirit by focusing on happy, grateful, and excited emotions. As Oprah Winfrey said, "The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate."*
As you think about the coming months ahead for your goals, dreams, or projects, it's a fun idea to celebrate each step, each win. From Nelson Mandela, "Remember to celebrate milestones as you prepare for the road ahead."**
Try This: Celebrate! Sing, Dance & Twirl!
During the week ahead, use the jumpstart of celebrating Independence Day and find ways to celebrate other things as well! For each good thing that happens or goal you achieve, you can:
- Sing, dance and skip more.
- Hug and squeeze more.
- High five and thumbs up more.
- Smile and laugh more.
Whenever you focus on the positive things that happen or celebrate little wins, your spirit will lift, even soar. Who doesn't want to soar?
