The Poisonwood Bible says, “To live is to be marked. To live is to change, to acquire the words of a story, and that is the only celebration we mortals really know.”
I admit it is difficult to think positively in challenging situations because our mind is occupied with several things. But you have to hold your nerves and think before reacting. Bad times will turn into good and good once again bad but one should not leave the positive attitude.
Imagine you’re in the middle of your favorite activity but your mind can’t stop thinking about work. Then you’re not really celebrating because over-planning can be very draining.
These small steps in one’s life can make even a dejected person lead a wonderful life. So, yes life certainly is a celebration the only thing that matter is your attitude.
