Make Your Own Luck: Ways to Celebrate St. Paddy's Day 2022

When most people think of St. Patrick’s Day, they think of leprechauns, pots of gold at the end of the rainbow, four-leaf clovers, and horseshoes for good luck. If you’ve been thinking of ways to celebrate the luck of the Irish on this special holiday, then why not spend some time focusing on some of the good stuff. This St. Patrick’s day, we’re giving you some ways to tap into the richest parts of your life.

1. Love What You Have

A little gratitude goes a long way! In fact, people who look and feel lucky say that practicing gratitude has been one of the most important routines that they take part in. The work that goes into drawing your attention to focus on positive things that you’re ready to attract in your life is both challenging at times and rewarding. Practicing gratitude allows you to take pleasure in what you already have, as well as enables you to feel more lighthearted and energetic when the next hurdle makes itself known. Instead of complaining about chores and projects, you’ll be able to see them in the context of everything good that’s around you. This ultimately makes it easier to get to the stuff you like to do. 

2. Seek Out What You Want

It’s time to stop being complacent when it comes to the things you’d like to establish in your life. Whether you’re looking to gain more physical mobility, have more order and organization in your household, or take the steps needed to switch jobs or land that promotion, you must put forth the effort needed in order for those results to come to fruition. And if you happen to feel a little overwhelmed along the way, there’s no shame in asking for help. Sometimes two heads are better than one, so you should never underestimate the power of a good brainstorming session. After all, just knowing that you’re going after what you want will allow you to feel good about yourself in ways that will keep your momentum flowing. 

3. Make Some Connections

Take the time to connect with people by listening, having conversations, helping out, and learning from family and friends. Making meaningful connections in your life doesn’t mean that you have to give up every spare moment that you have. It simply means that you’re making an effort to share your experiences with others while letting them share theirs with you in return. In doing this you’re making space for opportunities to come your way that would never have had the chance to do so if you never reached out. The fact that you have friends, family, and other loved ones to talk to is a beautiful and powerful gift that should be both protected and nurtured. 

4. Practice Self Care

It’s true when they say, “You can’t pour from an empty vessel.” How can you give of yourself to others when you’re exhausted, run-down, and burnt out? Self care is a big deal, and you should take part in it. Self care doesn’t have to be anything complicated or expensive. For example, you can spend some time in nature, take walks at your local park, get a massage, do arts and crafts, or anything that makes you happy. It’s of utmost importance to take care of both our body and our mind. Therefore, taking time out of our busy schedules to do something that helps us relax and that makes us happy can do wonders for our physical and mental health. Even spending some time with a good book and a cup of tea can do a world of good. 

Another way that you can practice self care is by purchasing some of the products that bring you joy to use. These can be anything from body lotions, to perfumes, shower gels, scented candles, and more. For instance, if you enjoy massaging FAB CBD Full-Spectrum CBD Body Salve into your cranky joints and muscles, or love the taste of our “Anytime” gummies that are also a fun way to get in your daily dose of CBD, then why not take advantage of FAB CBD’s special St. Paddy’s Day Sale

5. Put an End to What Doesn’t Serve You

This may be easier said than done. Everyone has habits and patterns of doing things that we know don’t serve us well. For example, things like letting the dishes pile up in the sink, eating until we feel sick, or laying around in bed all day aren’t good to do all the time. Sure, it’s okay when it happens once in a while, but when they become a bad habit, then we’re letting our lifestyle be defined by our weaknesses. It’s during these times that we feel our luck is either running out or is gone for good. In order to stop the stuff that makes you miserable, you need to set yourself up for success by ending the things that are preventing you from thriving. You know what these things are, and if you don’t, then you might want to sit down and make a list of them. Then, once you’ve identified them, create a plan and take action to make the necessary changes. 

6. Do What Makes You Happy

This may sound a lot like self care, and it does add to it in some ways, but making time for yourself is a different way to help you feel fulfilled and lucky. Doing what makes you happy can run the gamut from work to play, and from relationships to physical health. You can begin by taking notice of all the times in your life when you’ve felt the best you’ve ever felt. Next, think about what made those times so good. Was it your mindset? Was it where you were located? Was it the people who surrounded you? Was it a project you were involved in? When you add more things that make you happy into your life and life goals, you’ll keep the energy flowing, abundant, and upbeat even when life feels tough. So, if certain projects, people, and places inspire you, don’t be afraid to seek them out.
