Friend, you are doing better than you think you are. At times it can be easy to only see our faults or where we believe we need to improve. It can be tempting to recognize our victories only when they seem big enough to be considered significant.
Remember that wins and victories come in all shapes and sizes. Regardless of what your success may look like, recognize it for what it is, even if it’s just deciding to stay in the game.
Take time to celebrate yourself. This could be by allowing your accomplishment to be known or seen by close friends and family, making space in your schedule to do something that you love as a reward, or simply reminding yourself that your commitment to growth is powerful.
Self-talk may seem cheesy, but it is powerful. Give it a try, even if it feels awkward at first. Find something that you can be proud of or enjoy about yourself. Or, compliment and thank yourself for a good decision you’ve made. Our journeys are a process, and encouragement is powerful fuel, especially that which comes from ourselves.
