First off, let me say I have a major infatuation with this collection of works by Clare Elsaesser on Etsy. What could be better than a dreamy flowery hug? Swoon. This one might need to come adorn my office.
Have you ever noticed that vacations are perfect celebrations? We reward ourselves with all sorts of treats – whether that be sleeping in, an afternoon at the art galleries, an extra dessert – and no guilty feelings at all! I am learning that my life would be a whole lot better if I adopted a little of that “you’re worth it” mantra into my daily life – not just when I’m on “vacation.”
Are you good at celebrating your accomplishments? I am all too skilled at reminding myself what I’ve done poorly, but rarely do I reward myself for things I’ve done well. I’ve decided that needs to change and my life needs a little more vacation-attitude.
I’ve done some huge things so far this year – including but not limited to launching this new blog design & starting a new business! – and these things (heck, even the little things like actually making it to the gym more than once a month) definitely deserve for me to notice and celebrate them.
Here are some of my favorite ways to celebrate the little things:
1. Buy myself some flowers, because I’m awesome.
2. Pour myself a celebratory libation. Lately, I’ve been on a mimosa kick – because what is more celebratory than a little bubbly?
3. Stop working for just a second there, lady, and breathe for a minute. You’ve earned it.
4. Dance parties are always highly recommended – even if it’s just for actually getting the laundry folded.
What about you? Are you good at celebrating? If so, teach me your ways – what are some of your favorite ways to celebrate?
