Over the weekend, my husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary. We didn’t have a fancy dinner, but instead took a long road trip filled with lots of conversation and laughter.
And it was time well spent.
Anniversaries give us a time to honor the important milestones in our lives.
We could let these days pass by unmarked, but by celebrating them, we refresh our gratitude.
This week’s intention
Here are 3 anniversaries you may not be celebrating now, but should consider. Each one has an impact on your life and work.
- The day you gave up something that wasn’t serving you anymore. Was it an unhealthy attachment to someone? A compulsion to outspend your means? Was it a vice you were numbing yourself with? A job you hated? A life that wasn’t authentic? Either way, at one time this thing had a hold on you. And now it doesn’t.
- The day you met a teacher that changed your life. They may have been your boss, a colleague or a former mentor. They may have been someone you didn’t even like or someone that hurt your feelings. But if they came into your life and left you forever stronger or wiser, you should celebrate it.
- The day your spiritual connection became real. This is the day you went from “hoping” there was more to your life than the daily grind to finding your path to contentment and joy. This is the day your heart expanded and the earliest seeds of peace, gratitude and service started growing in your life. This day changed everything.
My intention is to be grateful for my life’s journey.
Pick a day this week to celebrate one of these important milestones.
This doesn’t have to be an outward celebration. Truthfully, nobody other than you even needs to know about it. But make the day special in some way – wear your favorite outfit, treat yourself to a prayer outside, add an extra meditation, do an invigorating workout or a sneak away for a long peaceful lunch break.
Happy anniversary and see you next week!
