What Can You Celebrate?

My granddaughter has been waking each morning with an announcement of what day it is. Several days ago, she declared as "Something" day. "Something" day was all about discovering the "something".

This morning, she declared today Celebration Day! That was my year long theme for 2007, so I immediately identified with the Celebration Day idea.

Which ever day you might read this, intend on making it Celebration Day-a day to look for things to celebrate. It might be a green light instead of a long red light-or a red light instead of a green one.

Maybe you will rejoice in the fact that expected inclement weather did not appear as expected.

Maybe you awoke NOT feeling tired, ready to grab hold of all that awaits you.

The hardest thing to celebrate can be those days that really challenge every molecule of energy you have. The days like in the movie Ground Hog Day, where you just keep running into the same roadblocks all day long, seemingly without any way to effect the outcome.

I have recently been studying The Universal Law of Cause and Effect with David Neagle. I have always believed that you are the one that changes how your life goes. If you can see things from the opposite side of what you are experiencing, you find hope, determination and freedom.

The Law of Cause and Effect says that every cause has an effect and every effect has a cause. If you think about this for a moment, you will realize that you cause things to happen in your life. When you wake up in the morning expecting it to be a bad day because of a meeting or situation with which you are not happy, you are setting in motion a negative expectation for the day.

However, if you wake up late, can't find the outfit you wanted to wear and decide to chose something even better, you are setting in motion- or causing- a better outlook for the day.

So, find ways to celebrate today. Maybe leaving late for work gives you less traffic or helps you avoid an accident backup.

Create a day worth celebrating!
