You Have To Celebrate Every Moment You Can
Throughout the course of our lives we will have opportunities to celebrate various milestones. It is my opinion that too many people ignore these opportunities, writing them off as events that "happen every day."
To those people I say you do not have any guarantee to "another day," not for yourself, not for anyone you may know.
Life is a crap shoot, and while circumstances or good fortune may allow you to hedge your bets, nothing is certain.
The end could come at any moment. You have an obligation to yourself to enjoy, to celebrate, every moment you can.
While it is pragmatically impossible to enjoy every moment of every day, it is quite possible to enjoy the vast majority of them. Life at times can be difficult, life at times can be a challenge, life at times can even seem to be too horrible, too untenable, too unbearable, to be worth continuing...but that is only you lying to yourself.
Life can be, or will be, or is, good.
You may think that you are suffering through the worst circumstances that anyone could imagine, but chances are, if you are reading this you are not living life in a concentration camp, you are not living life in a gulag, you are not living life in a refugee camp, you are certainly not being restricted in your access to the internet...
...in all probability, you are free, you are able, and you are capable, of living your life as you see fit.
So do it.
