Humans have the ability to celebrate someone else's happiness or success - the innate delight in the well-being of others. It  is not always easy.  Sometimes another person’s achievements or success bring up feelings of envy or jealousy or a sense of ones own lack of success or achievement. These feelings are natural human nature.

Remember, you have a choice. You can decide to be happy with the other person. You might not always get what you want , but you always have control over your perspective. The interesting thing about  celebrating  is that when we practice it consistently, we often end up happier ourselves.

Think of it as good karma. Think of it as good manners. Whatever works for you; be happy for others.
