You’re done! It’s time to celebrate and plan what is next.
On the seventh day of creation, God rested. He looked back on all the work he had accomplished and enjoyed how good it was. And then he told us to do the same.
When we have completed something, we should take the time to rest and celebrate. Many of us are not too good at that. We are driven by projects and by work, and we rarely rest and celebrate. But it is virtuous to rest and celebrate, and it is viceful not to do so.
So, do something to celebrate your achievement in virtue education. You may have not have achieved all that you wanted to, but if you are reading this page, you have achieved something, and you should focus on that.
How you celebrate is entirely up to you. But make it something unusual and special. Cook a special meal. Eat out somewhere exotic. Go for a short trip somewhere Buy yourself something that you’ve wanted for a while. Organise an evening of singing and celebration with your group. Get a picture framed and hang it on your wall. Whatever.
As you celebrate, look back and say to yourself: ‘Well done, this has been very good’.
Virtue education is not something that you do once and get it over with. It is a lifestyle of commitment to intentional growth. So don’t stop here. Make some plans for what you would like to do next.
You may feel a little tired at this point and you don’t really want to plan anything quite yet. That’s fine. Come back to this later.
