I thought about the term, “celebration of life” and realized that we should celebrate life everyday, not just when someone passes. For most of us, we get into our daily routines and often take life for granted, such as saying good morning or saying goodnight to our loved ones, seeing the sun rise or set each day, or feeling the wind on our face. We even take for granted the earth that we walk on.

Don’t wait until someone passes away to have a “celebration of life”. Celebrate life everyday, in every way possible. Celebrate your work, your family, and the food that you eat. Celebrate each breath that you take and every step that you walk. Celebrate your short life on this planet. Never take a single day for granted.

Celebrate your life today in some way that honors your journey. Be alive, be present to all that is.
