Today's (Priceless) Thought

Contributed by Gwen Gamble

Today's thought is:

Take time to celebrate.

Celebrate your successes, your growth, your
accomplishments. Celebrate you and who you are.

For too long you have been too hard on yourself. Others
have spilled their negative energy--their attitudes, beliefs,
pain--on you. It had nothing to do with you! All along, you
have been a gift to yourself and to the Universe.

You are a child of God. Beautiful, a delight, a joy. You do
not have to try harder, be better, be perfect, or be anything
you are not. Your beauty is in you, just as you are each

Celebrate that.

When you have success, when you accomplish something,
enjoy it. Pause, reflect, rejoice. Too long  you have listened
to admonitions not to feel good about what you have done,
lest you travel the downward road to arrogance.

Celebration is a high form of praise, of gratitude to the
Creator for the beauty of God's creation. To enjoy and
celebrate the good does not mean that it will be taken from
you. To celebrate is to delight in the gift, to show gratitude.

Celebrate your relationships! Celebrate the lessons from the
past and the love and warmth that is there today. Enjoy the
beauty of others and their connection to you.

Celebrate all that is in your life. Celebrate all that is good.
Celebrate you!

Today, I will indulge in the joy of celebrating.


Thank you Gwen.  -Dr. Irene
