I urge you to take note of what makes your life worth living and spend time celebrating it in an authentic and meaningful manner. It’s the easiest way to embrace how wonderful things are, even if at times they seem sad, stupid, or otherwise negative. I feel very strongly about this. So I integrated the practice into my year, generally on days used for certain holidays.
This is often referred to as what I call “Smart Celebrations to Increase the General Awesomeness of Life.” Here is a table of some of those holidays/dates:
*Dates and content subject to change as arbitrarily as they were originally asserted, by either the federal government or me. Full calendar appears in The Avanstitution, which isn’t available in its entirety for public viewing.
The beauty of making holidays of your own is that the subject of focus and means of celebrating are entirely up to what you find significant in your life, though I’d wager you value some of the same sorts of things I list above.
So consider it: what makes you happy and how can you commemorate its existence?
