On this Thankful Thursday I was thinking about how I tend to love celebrating the big things! I mean the BIG things and BIG accomplishments …

It’s kind of like the whole “more is more, thing.”  The bigger the accomplishment the better. I am pretty sure I got that from my Dad.

But Winters, on the other hand, loves to celebrate the small stuff – especially lately. Our “to do” lists have been mounting once again. And frankly, it was starting to freak me and Winters out a bit.

But I have found that I want more out of life with less in it. But I must be honest that is not easy for me even though I want it.

Now I love lists. I make them all the time for absolutely everything and I love to mark things off my list. But some things were simply not getting marked off.  And it was starting to really bug us.

So I started attacking the list again several days ago,   And we made a decision to start hacking away at that list.  So yCorby's heashot by Ginaes, I am learning to celebrate the small stuff.

Little by little over the last few days we have whittled or chipped or hacked, whatever you want to call it, the things must get done that haven’t and were simply weighing us down.

Yippie!!  It is celebration time.  Ok, well not quite yet, but soon very soon.

The SONS’ closets have been purged and clothes are being dispersed to friends whose sons are thrilled.

I am purging once again and we have made some necessary business decisions on building Pure Empowerment Coaching International.   I am also celebrating being the new Director of Children and Family Ministries at Cornerstone United Methodist Church,  I truly could not be more thrilled to be back in church ministry as well as coaching my clients.

Whether we celebrate big things or small, it is important to celebrate all that we do.   Winters just simply reminds me to celebrate the small stuff!  Great wisdom from a great guy.

I would urge you today to think of all those things that are weighing you down and keeping your energy tied up and distracted from your greater purpose.

So on this Thankful Thursday, I pray that we can all begin to celebrate the small victories in our lives because the reality is the small victories all add up to enormous ones and can one day lead to more time for joy and  to do greater things for God and more time hanging out with family and friends.

Letting go of things we no longer need whether big or small lightens our load in life.

Try not to sweat the small stuff – just celebrate the small victories and embrace your life with gusto. Focus your attention on the significant things in life and not the insignificant.

So my Dear friends, be blessed and encouraged abundantly today as we live life in our passion and purpose and celebrate the small stuff along the way!
