Welcome to our Self-Care Series! This week I want to talk about something we have a tendency to do for others…but not for ourselves. That would be…CELEBRATE! Each one of us has these moments of triumph in our lives. They happen far more frequently than we notice. Each and every day there is something to celebrate. As a parent, spouse, friend, co-worker….we see those moments for other people. If you have ever potty trained a child…you know that those first few times the child actually uses the bathroom it feels like you’ve won a Nobel Peace Prize! OR what about when your spouse/significant other gets a raise or a new client? How do you feel inside when a friend calls you in a fit of excitement to share a moment of joy?
You celebrate these moments with them…for them….and it’s real, genuine joy that you have for them.
We need to take those moments for ourselves too.
Recently, I’ve decided to get rid of the clutter and downsize. I used to be the kinda gal that liked every surface covered with something that meant something. I wanted pictures on every wall and knick-knacks on every flat surface. BUT it caused me so much stress. My home never looked neat. The amount of stuff everywhere actually game me anxiety, but didn’t realize it for years.
Over the last couple of months I’ve been purging my home. It’s incredible how much peace this has brought me…and also how easy it is to keep things clean!
I sit back now and look around and I find joy and peace in my clutter free spaces. And I celebrate this. I truly do. I smile….give myself a pat on the back and allow that happiness, pride and again….joy….to surround me.
A lot of us wouldn’t think to celebrate these moments…but if it matters to you and you did it…celebrate it.
Take pride in your moments. They can be HUGE…life changing….OR just the stuff we do on a day to day basis. Take a moment and list (even mentally if the paper is too much hassle) all the things that you’ve accomplished today and celebrate them!
Celebrate YOU. You deserve it.
I’d love to read your thoughts…share them below!
