Lately I have been really feeling myself and recognizing all of my accomplishments over the last two years. I have worked really hard and deserve to celebrate.
Accomplishments in the last 2 years:
Received my Bachelors degree
Earned 2 job promotions with pay raises
Went to a conference for 3 days without knowing anyone
Ran a 1/2 marathon
Earned money from blogging (not enough to quit my full-time)
Kept my kids healthy and alive
Stayed married and sane
In the past it has really been hard for me to celebrate myself and all of my accomplishments. I am a work in progress and realize that I deserve to have the light shined on me.
I think it all comes from when I was told as a child by another child that I thought I was better. I was that kid who loved to learn and be in front of the class. I did not get in trouble and loved everything about my childhood. I had to ask myself what was holding me back in celebrating my wins and that I always come back to that feeling of hearing that. I know as an adult I should not let it affect me but it has really did over these years.
Well now I am fighting my way out of that thought pattern and learning to celebrate me. I think I should book a trip.
How do you celebrate your wins?
