Take Time to Celebrate!
Take Time to Celebrate this Week!
So I’ve been thinking a lot about celebrating successes, and I would really like to have a space here that encourages us all to do that. I think it’s something a lot of us don’t take time to do.
And I think it’s *very important*. In fact, the more I’ve been reading about the visualization techniques of top athletes, the more important I realize it is. That celebrating strengthens you and motivates you and just enriches your life.
But I also think that we have to be careful to celebrate not just the Big Huge Visible Accomplishment, but those things we value the most–that we had a great day hiking with our families, maybe, or that we made cookies with the kids. (Because if those are important and yet we don’t celebrate them as successes, then we subconsciously undervalue ourselves for taking time to do them.) And sometimes we need to celebrate the tiny, tiny thing we managed to snatch out of a really bad week or month–every little victory.
So…I want to try to do a (perhaps weekly?) space here where people can take a second to celebrate.
What are you celebrating this week? How are you celebrating? (Sometimes I feel you can do it just by taking a deep breath and thinking about it for a moment.)
I am really, really grateful and happy that ONCE UPON A ROSE has been so well received. Thank you all so much! And I’m celebrating a weekend spent with friends and family making crêpes and playing outside in the beautiful weather we had.
How about you?
I hope everyone has a great week!
