It can often feel as though life is dull, progressing at a pace of relative slowness. We especially feel this when sitting in a waiting room, or stuck in traffic during our commute to work. However, our lives are anything but boring when we consider just how quickly things can happen, and how we change from week to week. You likely are not the same person you were even a month ago.
Additionally, it’s important to recognize that the milestones we celebrate in life can come thick and fast. Perhaps it’s your child’s fifth birthday this year, and you’re absolutely shocked as to just how quickly that time has gone. Perhaps you’ve been sober for ten years and are amazed at how well you have turned around your life. Commemorating a milestone in life can be a massive thing, and they are worth noticing.
Sometimes, these milestones are overwhelming. Perhaps we have finally rid ourselves of a toxic relationship, have met our fitness goal after losing plenty of weight, or have reconnected with a long lost family member. It can be worth commemorating this day and celebrating it, because after all, these are the positive moments we live for. Let us see just how that might apply:
A Bonding Experience
A bonding experience can be very important to consider, for more reasons than you may think. Perhaps in order to celebrate your twentieth year in marriage you decide to take a long walk in a European town, or head and renew your wedding vows, or simply talk at length, something that can be hard to do when taking care of all of your responsibilities. Some might find that a matching tattoo with a best friend can signify a memory of a wonderful experience taken together, such as a road trip across land. Just ensure you haven’t forgotten the tattoo numbing cream.
A Lovely Treat
A lovely treat can be important to help you feel the celebration well. If you’ve just been promoted, why not go to the nicest restaurant in the city with your family? Don’t feel as if you have to stay humble about an achievement or something wonderful in your life, because if you cannot jump for joy at this, what can you feel joy towards?
Expressing This Value
It might also be that expressing the value of a moment through a form of art or communication can be important. For example, it can be nice to write a poem to your friend who has finally beaten cancer, a means in which to creatively show just how proud you are of then and how you’ll always be there. A video diary with all of their friends showcased could also bring a tear to their eye. When you express yourself, no matter how that comes out, you will bring a great amount of beauty to this discussion, and that can be a wonderful thing.
With this advice, we hope you can fully commemorate a positive milestone in life.
