Welcome to the repost of the First Edition of the CelebraZine (Celebration eZine) blog carnival, originally posted 03 Sept 08-posted here as the beginning of a series of a 'running carnival' (of posts both found and shared with me) that uplift and inspire.

What was a bi-weekly infusion of inspiration is becoming daily offerings of smaller installments--a daily inspiration of sayings, video, audio (music and speech), images, poetry--anything and everything that feeds the positive in heart, spirit, and mind.

Our focus dictates what we see, which reinforces our focus, further confining the possibility of what we will see. Initially, twice a month we will put together of collection of blogs containing text, image, video, and audio from talented people empowering others and Celebrating What's Right in the World!

May you be blessed by these offerings reminding us of the beauty, wonder, and sacredness in the world around us and within us. This first edition heavily leans toward the written celebration. I have included some of my recent favorites from across the web.

Let's start the celebration of yourself!
