Monday Musings: Focusing on Celebrating as a Way to Live!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

There was plenty of cause for celebrating this weekend.  Historic milestones were achieved in Space. As one enthusiastic reporter stated, "we are about to become and interplanetary species!" Space travel is no longer a dream, it is evolving into a reality.

 

Do we need a cause for celebrating?  We are of the opinion that there is plenty to celebrate on a daily basis.  We do not need causes or reasons. By focusing on the present moment, we find that just being alive should be celebrated.

 

There is so much we take for granted in our daily lives.  We have been thinking of that lately as our world is getting less restricted.  All of a sudden, we are delighting in the mundane, like haircuts, dining out, and face to face conversations with strangers.  

 

"Celebration is a kind of food we all need in our lives, and each individual brings a special recipe or offering, so that together we will make a great feast.  Celebration is a human need that we must not, and can not, deny.  It is richer and fuller when many work and then celebrate together."

~ Corita Kent (artist)

 

"The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate."

~ Oprah Winfrey (extraordinary lady)

 

"Celebrate what you want to see more of."

~ Tom Peters (business management and marketing expert)

 

"Find a perspective that transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary."

~ Dewitt Jones (photographer)

 

"By celebrating what's right with the world, we find the energy to fix what's wrong."

~ Dewitt Jones

 

Happy Monday, Happy June 1, 2020, Celebrate!

Cheers, Ron & Alexandra

Nina Hollander Oprah is a force of nature...And we agree with her positive outlook.  There is so much to celebrate when you think about it and take stock into how much we take for granted. A

Hello A and Ron,  we had dinner at Olive Garden last night to celebrate our anniversary with our friends.  We made it a point to talk about the space blog first to start something on a positive point.

All so true, always lots to celebrate, the sound of a babbling brook, sunshine rising above the crest of the horizon, a new day.

I was a young boy when we went to the moon. I will never forget my Dad watching with us. He did not believe it was real. He could not wrap is head around us going to the heavens. My boy is about to start college. He will be going for Aerospace engineering. He wants to design rockets that take people to space!

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty I seem to remember rumors about space travel as we watched being fake...So delighted for your son's educational goal.  You must be proud.  It is the next big industry, and many existing industries will have to retool and rethink in order to stay relevant.  A

Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 we were at Trader Joe's this morning doing our weekly run..no lines.  I was talking to one of the gals cleaning carts, and she was saying how we all should be talking about the space mission success and all kinds of great stuff...and I so agree with you Nick, so much to celebrate..A

Hi Ron and Alexandra- I absolutely love the quote by Dewitt Jones!!!!  Years ago I had a friend who would bring me down every time I talked to her. I would walk away feeling less than happy. We need to surround ourselves with people who are positive and...as you say...celebrate life!!!

Will Hamm Happy Anniversary to you and your lovely wife.  We celebrated ours at home with great Champagne and meal...and we both catch ourselves or each other when a negative thought dare to manages its way to our lips.  A

Hi Alexandra and Ron,
As I was reading Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less I thought a lot about the thoughts you've shared about life and mindfulness.  

  There is so much we take for granted in our daily lives.  We have been thinking of that lately as our world is getting less restricted.  All of a sudden, we are delighting in the mundane, like haircuts, dining out, and face to face conversations with strangers.

Carol Williams Today, one of the Trader Joe's ladies was deriving pleasure from our conversation about the Space X.  She just kept talking and talking, and we both could tell how deprived she had felt from a regular conversation...Usually, she is busy making the customenrs feel good, and this time it was our turn...We also derived equal pleasure from the situation, 6 feet apar with big smile on faces...A

Kathy Streib I treat this type of a person, like you would a mischievious little kid, by distracting them and or changing the subject.  If that does not work, I remind them that I need to get going!  Sanity is precious as is health...LOL

Celebrate! No matter what's going on in our lives....Celebrate! Contrast and all. Years some friends and I used to say CELEBRATE....especially when one of us was less than happy or focused on what was working.  I think the idea came from the God books as we called them  Celebrate!

 

And you already know how excited we were to watch the space stuff. Very cool!

Anna Banana Kruchten Arizona's Top Banana! one of the guys that worked with us at our commercial real estate firm, was really bummed out with a deal that went South, at the last moment...We happened to go to a restaurant, where he saw someone he knew and was able to put the deal back together with a new tenant...From that point on, we celebrated whatever, the outcome was...LOL A

I always believed in celebrating life in unexpected ways. When I had a family to care for, we celebrated Christmas in July, Thanksgiving Day in the park, Fourth of July on the top of a mountain in Maine, and in many other fun ways. There's always a reason to celebrate, even when you think, it's not possible. As Audrey Hepburn said, "Nothing is impossible, the word itself says, I'm possible."
