Are you celebrating or despairing?

Yes, life DOES sometimes get us down. And without waxing philosophical, it's fair to say that we were never promised "fair". But we can make a choice to be miserable or to celebrate! So I'm asking you - how are you celebrating what you've accomplished so far this year? What is it? How did you do it? I will bet dollars-to-doughnuts that everyone has achieved something that deserves a celebration. So let us in on your secret!

My garden. Our upcoming travel plans (yes, indeed, we ARE travelling soon). Our purchase of pre-construction condos here in Canada and in Costa Rica. We drink lovely wine to celebrate, we enjoy our beautiful garden to celebrate, and we spend hours planning where we're going and when we'll be there to celebrate.

I'm also celebrating... moving to a much less expensive and much larger house that will allow me to afford a nicer lifestyle! I'll also be able to travel at some point thanks to the money I'll be saving. I'm also celebrating all the things I've accomplished during the various lockdowns. It hasn't been easy and I'm not coming out of this unchanged but I feel there is some positive coming out of this. I've also made many personal decisions for the future thanks to the lessons I've learned during this pandemic.

Way to go. There's always positive stuff if we look for it. I think we're so conditioned to look for the negative stuff that we forget there's lots and lots of positive stuff around us. We've all accomplished a lot and I know you've made huge changes over the past year.
