Humans love to celebrate and be celebrated. Every time I speak to a group of people and ask if they enjoy the recognition of their successes without fail most will nod their head or raise their hand. When we are small these celebrations usually happen frequently. We get celebrated for taking steps, smiling, talking, reading, etc. As we get older the celebrations of feats are few and far between. I am not sure why this happens especially since I have surveyed hundreds of people and they all say they enjoy being celebrated.
I want to encourage you to not only celebrate yourself but celebrate others. Recognize those around you for their wins big or small. I actually think celebrating the small can be even more important after all 100 small wins lead to one huge one! Take the time to pay attention to those who surround you. If you notice someone has met any of their big or small goals congratulate them. Celebrate those around you, it feels good and will inspire them to celebrate too!
Day to day celebration is easily forgotten with all of the busyness and chores. It is important to be intentional and look for opportunities to celebrate. It will enhance our mood and overall sense of wellbeing, plus it will make others happy. I am rooting for you! Let me know how it goes. Karla
