Phun-size Philosophy # 63 – Celebrations

Celebrations are the entertaining festivities for special occasions usually to mark some happy event or potentially a milestone where much effort time and resources have been spent to reach a particular goal. Celebrations are usually used as mediums from which others cheer for the success they or others have achieved. They are used to show appreciation for the amount of benefits the current situation you are in has afforded to you or your surroundings. If you celebrate, it means you’ve accomplished a certain aspiration or some other event took place that has made it a worth while time to splurge, go all out, and make a deal about it by partying hard. In fact when you celebrate you will most likely party in the presence of others who were involved in the achievement at hand. There are many instances where celebrating is an appropriate response. Whether you have finally gotten the promotion you’ve always been looking for, or you got an A in your math class, there will always be something in our life we can be proud to say we did. By celebrating and partying because of said achievement, you are showing that you are proud of your actions and want others to know about them. When you are celebrating you are relishing in the success or outcome of a challenging obstacle. The celebrations are made even sweeter if you are celebrating after a hard earned achievement. If you try really hard in order to complete something and it proved difficult to you, once you finally do get around it, you get a sense of satisfaction knowing you have the potential to beat or solve really hard problems. When you get a taste of success, you will want to emulate and repeat such instances again and again in future ventures. I’m pretty sure it’s safe to assume that you would rather continue to celebrate frequently as apposed to a once in a lifetime kind of celebration. I love to celebrate and I don’t think I’ve met anyone who doesn’t like a good to have a good birthday party celebrating your life ever year.
