Let Them Eat Cake: The Value of Celebration

“The more you praise and celebrate life, the more there is in life to celebrate.”

Oprah Winfrey


This month marks 15 years of being Your Thought Partner at The Grossman Group.  Growing up I never appreciated the significance of milestone birthdays or anniversaries.  Uncle Tom and Aunt Rose’s 25th anniversary party?   My focus was on when we got to eat the cake and go home.  (For those of you who know me well, I am skipping the “have my cake and eat it too” pun here.)

Then I got married and had kids and am the first to celebrate.  Now I get it.  Personal and professional milestones matter.  In a myriad of ways.  Bring on the cake and the streamers and the noise makers and the unicorn piñata, as my oldest daughter Avi requested for her recent 5th birthday.  Pop open the Veuve and hand me a tall glass!

Making it to 5 or 15 or 25 or 50+ – or any number in between, for that matter! – is cause for celebration, appreciation, and reflection.

I’m grateful for the clients who have entrusted us to help during their toughest and everyday defining moments.  I appreciate the amazing team of thought partners who are the best in the business. And, I’m grateful to my family for their love and support, and for understanding that fulfilling my passion often takes me away from them.

This anniversary also is a reminder of the need to celebrate more regularly with the people around us.  To share appreciation and be grateful for what we have.  It’s so powerful – for the person sharing, and for those receiving appreciation.  It’s free, easy to do, yet so often forgotten in the press of business today.

So here’s to you.  Thanks for reading, and for being part of our extended family as we celebrate 15 years.

In what ways are you celebrating both the big and little things with others?
