Years ago, I was invited to a local shop holding a New Year’s Eve party at noon, for young children to enjoy an early celebration. I suspect it was organized so parents could enjoy a night out later that evening, but the idea struck me as being a brilliant way everyone could celebrate the final day of December.
Consider this bit of history: Sir Isaac Newton discovered that white light, when split into a prism, actually consists of all the colors in the rainbow. There is no division between the colors: they all blend from one to the next. So do our days transition into one another. Our actions on one day lead naturally to the next, and so on. If we do not take time to celebrate all that we have accomplished, especially in this busy month, we risk never doing so. While a rainbow is beautiful, there is something to be said for savoring each color, or celebrating each day.
Try this: set aside some time on Sundays or Mondays to write down everything you accomplished the week prior, then add in at least one thing you are proud of having completed at any time during the year. Think back to the coldest months of February and March, or those hot days in August— what did you do that brought you joy? Did you create anything you want to repeat or build on this coming year? Take your time, savor the memories, and reflect on your success.
Here’s to celebrating friends and family this month… and here’s to you!
