Celebrate the day

We know how to celebrate the holidays. We know what presents or decorations are appropriate. But how about all of the other days? How do we celebrate them? Shouldn’t every day that we wake up be a celebration? Oh, but how can I celebrate a job I don’t like? You don’t. You celebrate the ability to have a job, the ability to consider a better job, the good that you can do there, the difference that you can make in even one person’s life by being there. Oh, but how do I celebrate my aches and pains? You don’t.You celebrate the mental clarity to know your pain and what makes it better or worse. You celebrate the parts that work well and that are not adding to your pain. Oh, but how do I celebrate a relationship that is the pits? You don’t. You celebrate the ability to have the greatest relationship ever and that’s the one with you and your Creator. Oh, but how do I celebrate my debts. You don’t. You celebrate all of the money that has flowed through your hands in the past and the very real possibility of more in the future. Oh, but how do I celebrate my loss? You don’t. You celebrate what you had and you celebrate what you learned. Oh, but how do I celebrate just a regular day. You don’t. Because there is no such thing.
