I feel like there’s a lot of pressure on me as I write this. It’s my 600th bloggage!
I can’t believe that I have splurged forth that amount of bloggerel – if you assume a conservative average of 200 words per bloggage that’s about 120000 words of mine that are now floating around the www. Amazing!
What’s even more amazing to me is thst some of you gluttons for punishment keep coming back for more…
So, this bloggage has to be profound, witty, clever, insightful and inspirational because of this occasion.
Or does it? Why do round numbers mean more to us than any others? Why have we just gone overboard (thankfully not literally) to celebrate the Queen having been on the throne for 60 years? Why not 59?
Don’t worry, this is not going all ‘bah humbug’ on you. I think it’s important to mark significant moments. But if you want a phrase to mark this landmark it’s this: ‘celebrate more’.
Don’t just wait for the special occasions to celebrate life, friendships, love, or whatever. Celebrate the significant and apparently insignificant. Live life to the full and celebrate as juch as possible: because celebrating is a close relation of ‘appreciating’ and we need much more of that in our world too.
Be blessed, be a blessing.
BNAG – that’s bang out of order
