Celebrating is something we all experience in our lives. Some celebrations are big and some are smaller.
Weddings, births of your children and grandchildren, celebrations of life, birthdays, anniversary’s, retirement. What other celebrations can you think of?
Today, August 13, 2022, is my firstborn, Adam’s 40th birthday! Happy, happy birthday to you my son!
So, due to he and his girlfriend celebrating in Mexico on his special day, we celebrated his milestone birthday earlier this week together.
What have you experienced in your life as a celebration of you?
As I think about this, we can intentionally create our “celebrating moments” for ourselves can’t we?
Furthermore, most of us were taught not to do this kind of thing as it would be “conceited”. I think differently now. We can each consciously do things for ourselves on a regular basis that is celebrating who we are.
Like what you ask?
How about honoring yourself by doing things regularly you truly enjoy? You can make sure you begin to say “no” instead of “yes” to things you really don’t want to do. You may find it freeing to be true to yourself and not commit to things that you really don’t want to commit to, simply out of guilt or thinking it’s the right thing for you to do.
Take time to celebrate any achievement you have in your life, both personally and professionally. So often people move on to the next thing, without taking time to reflect on what they just accomplished. Begin to slow down, breathe and feel the feelings of accomplishing something you’re proud of. Don’t move on until you’ve basked in what it is you just did!
As I’ve written about in other blogs, take time each day to slow down, breathe, allow yourself to feel what is going on inside of you, and find appreciation for everything you can, big or small.
Here are 3 reasons why it’s important for you to be celebrating yourself every day.
- It reminds us to enjoy the journey
- We become more grateful
- It increases our confidence
As you begin to do this on a daily basis, I guarantee you will begin to shift things inside of you about how you feel about yourself and others. You will begin to have more in your life that you truly want. Life will begin to get really good for you.
Lastly my action step for you this week is to find things to celebrate about yourself and do something that will help you to feel celebrated.
Write something in a comment within my blog or send me back an email, you will do that is in celebration of yourself, this coming week!~
