If you are anything like me, you are constantly focused on the the future, what's coming, and the next goal. Future projects excite me. My creative juices start flowing and I start to dream BIG! Then the planning, lists, and never ending to-do lists follow. And I don't think there's anything wrong with that - it's all good, it's all part of the journey. It's fun!
The problem sets in when I start beating myself up for not being further along. Or when I start comparing myself to others, and what they are doing and accomplishing. It's in not productive, and leaves me feeling like shit.
I was reminded of this today during a chat with a friend. I was beating myself up for not being where I thought I should be, and she ever so kindly said, "Hold up, why don't we talk about all the things you have done, because I feel like you're doing a whole heck of a lot!"
It gave me pause. I started to reflect on the past year and all of the changes, big and small that I've made. I started to list off all of the goals that I had achieved - and WOW, if someone had told me 6 months ago that I'd have accomplished half the stuff on my list, I would've been thrilled. So why, when I've actually accomplished it, am I beating myself up for not doing more?! It's crazy.
I know I'm not alone in this. Our thoughts, when left unchecked can have a tornado effect. So here's a reminder from me to you: Go celebrate! No matter if it's a big win or small win - you deserve to celebrate! You are worthy of feeling good!
This week's tapping video is all about taking time to celebrate the wins. Will you join me?!
