Celebrate Good Times

Simple title right. Simple activity and yet many of us don’t take the time to celebrate life’s little victories. I can hear someone grumbling nonsense like, “I won the battle, but not the war.” Each battle you declare victory on chips away at the bigger picture. Each win adds confidence to you, so celebrate. Enjoy life.

Each promotion you get at work moves you to higher plane in life. Higher wages. Maybe even above others, meaning a supervisor title. Maybe you got that corner office on the top floor or the key to the executive bathroom. Whatever your goal was. The fact is your moving and not just treading water. Life is about action. If you don’t take action, you aren’t living.

Maybe you’re reaching for personal goals? You go to the gym every day and you are doing your best to eat right. At last! You worked off that pesky twenty pounds. Pat yourself on the back! Engage in a happy activity. Allow yourself one scoop of ice cream. Celebrate. Tell your friends! BRAG.

I’m not going to lie or sugar coat anything. I set goals everyday. When I get home from work, I have a celebratory glass of chocolate milk. I survived work! Yay! When I type those sweet sweet words at the end of a manuscript, (The End) I celebrate! I share it all over social media. Everybody (meaning the four or five people who read my books) gets excited and wants to know when it’ll be published.

I don’t make my everyday goals. I try (keyword y’all) to write everyday. Sometimes, I don’t get to. I don’t beat myself up about it. I keep working on it, trying to carve out time to write. Time to study. Time to read. Time to spend with family. Housekeeping.

Along the way I keep striving toward my goals. I also spend time liking my friend’s posts and congratulating them on their goals. Some I encourage to keep going. We all need cheerleaders. We all need to celebrate our victories and our friend’s and family’s.
