It is human nature to set goals, achieve them and move right on to the next without even stopping to notice what you have just accomplished and to give yourself some credit. How many of you are already looking for the next challenge without even taking the time to celebrate the things you have done? I am guilty of this and have to remind myself every once in awhile of the things that I have already done and to appreciate and be grateful for the achievements that I have made so far in my life.
Time passes so quickly and we are always moving on to the next task, goal or accomplishment waiting to be conquered, but every so often we need to stop, take a deep breathe, give ourselves a pat on the back and celebrate all the things that we have achieved up to right now.
A suggestion that I would make would be to sit somewhere quite and write down your accomplishments in a journal, notepad or even your phone, going back as far as you can remember. There are so many things to look back on, but it is necessary to do this to truly understand how far you have come and all the beautiful things you have done in your life!
From school accomplishments to work goals that you have met as well as relationships, sports, arts, music, kids, family, church, health and wellness. Every good thing in your life should be celebrated big or small including, promotions, completing projects, ending bad relationships, achieving goals, over coming obstacles, raising children, sticking to workouts, eating right, being a role model, giving back and so on.
You may want to call this journal or notebook your “brag” book! Keep adding to it when you think of accomplishments and you will feel so good finally realizing all the great things you have done! I promise you that the feeling of achievement and satisfaction will fill your heart and you will continue to enjoy a more balanced, beautifulife!
My affirmation for you this week is;
I am taking the time to realize the achievements that I have made in my life and will celebrate the hard work and dedication that I have put into making things happen everyday!
