Small Celebrations

One of my longings for this year is to “Find small reasons to celebrate often.”

I’ve found that as I heal, I need to remember the small things.  Healing comes daily in subtle shifts,  and my thankfulness is dependent on paying attention to mundane details.

Here are a few ways that I’m celebrating right now:

-I’m starting to work out again!  I’ve given up cardio for the past two years in order to teach my body how to relax again and learn to restore itself.  So for now I’m back to doing Jillian Michaels’ workout videos.

-I’ve worked at DII longer than anywhere else since I’ve moved to Indy! To celebrate this I hosted a breakfast last weekend at my apartment.  It was a joy for me to gather friends and to cook yummy food for them, and have the energy to host and prepare to have people in my home.

-I’m approaching the end of my homework for the School of Spiritual Direction class.  What a joy this year has been to learn about this ancient, contemplative practice.

 

What small things are you celebrating now?
