Wow, we've been in a whirlwind of celebrations for this entire month! We've had 3 college graduations last weekend, a high school graduation party this weekend, an engagement announcement and our great grand baby's first birthday party!!!! YES, BIG WOW!!!

I didn't immediately come up with this particular topic, but when you listen in you'll appreciate the importance of this quote:

"You are a good and faithful servant! You've been faithful over a little.  I'll put you in charge of much.  Come, celebrate with me."
-- Matthew 25:21 

But in my perspective of what this quote is referring to, I find so many little 'wins' leading to the big events.  Yet, many of us put blinders on and so super focus on the big goal that we forget to celebrate all the special moments leading to the BIG celebration.

Many steps along the way make the arrival so sweet, and if you cherish those along the way, the success is so much more.

I really believe that setting aside the main thing for a while and just doing something each day that means something to someone else enriches your day.  Something as simple as sending an unexpected greeting card, writing a supportive email, responding to a friend request, smiling at a stranger.

My friend, Cynthia Bazin, laser-focused mentor extraordinaire asks her Inner Circle members to share their wins EVERY day because she knows the value of those little moments.  

If you've not embraced the idea of celebrating your little wins, give it a try and see how joyful this approach can be.  I learned this years ago and I know it makes a huge difference in my life, every day!

And please remember that Wednesday, Cynthia and I will be sharing tips and strategies with you and on Thursday resuming our BeLive discussion on organizing!  9 AM PST 11 AM CST and NOON EST

Enjoy an awesome day and thank you for listening, commenting and sharing!  I sooooo appreciate it!

Passing On A Smile,
