When was the last time you celebrated YOU?
I mean…. really celebrated your accomplishments? I have a “Compliment Box” on my desk for work. When I’m having an awful day I look through it and am reminded of the compliments clients have given me. It celebrates me in those “kudo” moments and reminds me of my awesomeness. The last time I celebrated me was recently. 12/1 was my birthday and I celebrated by luxuriating in self-care, being social with friends, and getting dolled up.
It’s important to celebrate the wins no matter what they are. In June Via and I celebrated the events we let lapse. We didn’t celebrate getting our LLC, my new PT job, our online store, or getting featured on two podcasts! That’s a lot of celebrating we had to catch up on! We celebrated at Dave & Buster’s with drinks and yummy food. I celebrated with a new tattoo and a day at the spa.
There are no rules for celebrating. Did you forget to celebrate that promotion you received six months ago?
Couldn’t get a babysitter for your third anniversary?
There is no deadline for celebrating you!
There are no rules either!
Celebrate in whatever way feels appropriate and safe. I like to ask myself “What would make your day perfect?” And the answer results in my favorite activities. I miss the moments of celebrating and enjoying it with shame. I think we should get back to that.
Embracing our accomplishments and us!
There’s time left in 2023!
Celebrate you before the month ends! 💋
