We celebrate St. Patrick today! We casually celebrate so many of these occasions each year!
Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Eid al-Fitr, Halloween, Diwali, Christmas.
We do this year in, year out.
We also celebrate milestones. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, births, engagements, graduations, new jobs.
All celebrations because of big events.
And that’s where it stops for most. It is as if we revel in the things that we are expected to. The things that carry with them a social norm. You kind of HAVE to.
You are looked upon if you don’t.
I celebrate EVERY day. By being grateful for what I have. By writing down the 3 best things that happened to me every night. By each day doing at least one thing just for my own pleasure.
I also celebrate every moment I feel I contributed to someone else’s wellbeing or happiness. Every day.
So Yes, Happy St Patrick’s Day. For so many reasons. For the big things, and the small things.
Let’s celebrate more often!
