CELEBRATION OF LIFE WEEK
Celebration of Life Week during the first week in January reminds us not only to ring in a New Year but celebrate life, too!
There are many things worth celebrating. You might celebrate meeting a specific goal like furthering your education or reaching a healthy weight. Maybe you’ve landed a new job or a well-deserved raise. Even little things are worth celebrating, like learning how to make a new recipe or discovering a new author. New homes, paying off credit cards, overcoming fears, opening a business, and making new friends are also great reasons to celebrate.
These are all some pretty amazing things that happen in life. But one thing you don’t want to neglect is celebrating life itself. That is precisely what the Celebration of Life Week is for. Many people celebrate the life of their children and grandchildren. These lives are precious and ought to be celebrated.
But along with children and grandchildren, this week offers a chance to celebrate all the important people in your life. These people could be your parents, grandparents, nieces, nephews, best friends, and neighbors. You can even celebrate your own life. That’s definitely worth celebrating!
HOW TO OBSERVE #CelebrationOfLifeWeek
There are many ways to participate in this week. If you want to celebrate yourself and the important people in your life, have a celebration of life party. Play games. Dance. Eat. Another way to celebrate this week is to simply take time for you. Take a spa day or a mental health day. Go on a well-deserved vacation. Watch a favorite movie or read a good book. Eat dessert first. Reconnect with an old friend. Make a list of all the people you are thankful for and tell them how much you appreciate them.
No matter what you choose to do on this celebratory day, share #CelebrationOfLifeWeek on social media.
