How many times have we found ourselves less than enthusiastic about attending a party with friends or a service at your place of worship only to leave feeling so glad that you went? Celebrations break up the monotony of our routines and usher us into luminal spaces where we see and experience things in different ways.

Gabrielle Roth puts it this way:

“Where we have stopped dancing, singing, being enchanted by stories, or finding comfort in silence is where we have experienced the loss of soul. Dancing, singing, storytelling, and silence are the four universal healing salves.”

Let’s pause for a moment during this busy holiday season to reflect on our abundance, our opportunities and embrace everyday moments where we get to come to together and renew ourselves with friendship and fun.

Have a great week, everyone. And don’t forget to celebrate!
