C: Celebrate Life

In participation with the A to Z Blog Challenge for 2016, we’re posting inspiring and motivational posts this month, all in an A to Z theme. We’ll post every day during April, except Sunday’s – when we all get time off for good behavior.

I hope you enjoy these posts and they give you some good food for thought. Check out some of the awesome blogs that are participating in the A to Z Challenge this year. There’s over 1700 blogs participating in the challenge, so I’m sure you’ll find some treasures in there.

C: CELEBRATE LIFE

The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
Oprah Winfrey

Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving;
make every day a holiday and celebrate just living!
Amanda Bradley
(also attributed to Sydney Smith)

Life is a celebration of awakenings, of new beginnings,
and wonderful surprises that enlighten the soul.
Cielo

People of our time are losing the power of celebration. Instead of celebrating we seek to be amused or entertained. Celebration is an active state, an act of expressing reverence or appreciation. To be entertained is a passive state–it is to receive pleasure afforded by an amusing act or a spectacle. . . . Celebration is a confrontation, giving attention to the transcendent meaning of one’s actions.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
The Wisdom of Heschel

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.
Dame Agatha Christie
