"Since you cannot do good to all,
you are to pay special attention to those who, by the accidents of time, or place, or circumstances,
are brought into closer connection with you."

Saint Augustine

We celebrate the big stuff.

Graduation. Weddings. Baby Showers. Retirement. 40th birthdays. Ha!
These milestones get a lot of attention. We buy the balloons, throw the confetti and eat all the cake! And it's glorious. These are momentous occasions that deserve an extra round of applause. Heck, I've been eating birthday cake for 5 straight days and I'm not going to complain about!

But the question I'll pose today is, are we celebrating the small stuff? Are we fostering a cheerleader-mentality to create a louder daily applause or are we simply glossing over the day-to-day operations? When a co-worker does well do we acknowledging their effort? When a child manages to rinse the plates and load the dishwasher without asking, are we celebrating them? When a counterpart makes the heroic decision to hang the wet towel, rather than abandon it on the bedroom floor, do we offer up a word of appreciation?
Do we celebrate the small stuff?

Busy days, mean time will pass quickly. Like, how is it almost spring? Be it good-busy or bad-busy, do we create the necessary pause to truly embrace the grandeur of goodness happening around us? Can we even recognize it? If the day is full, but lacking fulfillment, perhaps one must seek a new vantage point. Disclaimer: we have the choice to adopt new perspectives, or simply wait for life's wrecking ball of change to barrel through our comfort zone and help align new priorities for us.

Good things happen every day. Let's open our eyes, our ears and our minds to the good things happening so we can learn how to celebrate them. You may not have superhero spandex hiding under your sport coat, but you can certainly carry metaphoric pom-poms to be used at any moment. Take notice! And when you notice these things, say the nice words. Give the high fives. And of course, throw the confetti if you've got an extra handful in your pocket!
“Everything you do has an impact. Who you are – that you are – actually matters.
In an interconnected world (the only kind we have), our actions and the actions of others are inextricably linked-we are always and forever in a dance of mutual influence with those with whom we directly and indirectly participate. 
It is the unavoidable reality of being social creatures, only magnified by an ever-increasingly complex and interwoven societal structure. We matter to each other.”
-Paul Greiner
