“The more you praise and celebrate life, the more there is in life to celebrate” – Oprah Winfrey.


Your life, is finally your life – not your parents, not your spouses, not your kids’ but YOUR life. You have to take the reins of your life in your hand and decide how you want to live your life – make it meaningful, significant or live like a machine. Simply Celebrate Life.

Create moments in your life, celebrate those moments. Write about your moments so that they last long and you can go through them and have a broad smile on your face when you are older.

It doesn’t matter in which stage of life you are – you can be in your twenties, in your thirties or in mid-life – living a wholesome life is a matter of your decision – you can decide to love it and make it fruitful or decide to detest it or just survive it.

At some point during my post grads I thought – if I survive these two years I’ll have a better job and my life will be set. During my working years I thought if I survive a few years I’ll have a better position, better pay etc etc. But I also did one thing – I didn’t let my hobbies/ talents die out in the run of surviving life. I managed to keep writing – on the blog, in the journal. I gave importance to the new found interests of baking. I still doodle at times. Did I celebrate life? I at least kept myself alive and not become a machine.

“The best way to prepare for life is to begin to live.” – Elbert Hubbard

Today having quit my career I am bringing back those hobbies into work. I write and design professionally now and the best part is I am working for myself! Life itself is a celebration. The kind of person I am I am never content with one thing. I always feel the best is yet to come. Till I have that light in my heart I know I can do greater stuffs – in my own way. Am I celebrating life now – of course.

You know the key to peace within yourself now – Celebrate Life.

    I love the idea of celebrating life – it’s so easy to be stuck in a job that sucks the joy out of your life. It’s our responsibility to find something we can enjoy and fill as much of time with that as possible. So glad you found a life to celebrate.

    Agree with this thought completely. No matter what’s going on in our life, there always are enough reasons to celebrate. In fact we must make it a point to celebrate life in some way, however small, every day.

    Yet again I find myself nodding my head with your post, Tina. Life is a gift and it should be celebrated! I love how you’ve elaborated beautifully in that very important thought!

    But what do you do, if you want someone to be a part of those moments and they refuse to be one? Thinking of a way out here!

    When we keep adding ‘ifs’ in our life we forget to live in the present. Writing memories often bring smile later

    Your post really struck a chord with me! Yes we need to celebrate life- our own life and do something that we like despite all the other things that we are supposed to do.

    I love that photograph of the girl in shorts kicking up the spray. It really does celebrate life – something we must always remember to do.

    Agree with this completely! What’s life without celebrating the beautiful moments in it!
    P.S: Loved the graphic!

    Like they say – One life to live, we should make the most of it. When I had the twins life came to a standstill. However within a year or two I was struggling to get back on my feet and do my own thing. And I’m glad I did.

    Lovely post Tina. It’s sad that we have made ourselves too busy to enjoy the one thing that matters the most – our own life.

    Loved the idea if writing down the moments so you can look back and re-live whenever you want.

    Happiness lies in journey not destination. It’s good that you aren’t content and always move a step forward in the hope of best. Liked the Osho’s quote.
