I’ll let you in on a little secret.
I don’t celebrate my accomplishments.
Feel free to insert gasps of shock, awe, and disbelief here.
It may sound odd, but hear me out on this. So much time and energy went into accomplishing the task, that when I actually accomplished it, I was too emotionally/physically exhausted to celebrate it. Instead, I would just move on to the next item on the agenda.
While planning for 2015, I realized that I couldn’t go into another year not giving myself the recognition I deserved. I began keeping track of all my accomplishments, big and small. At the end of the year, I would revisit the pieces of paper I wrote each accomplishment on. It was my way of reminding myself of all the awesome things I had done.

Celebrate ALL of your wins. Don’t shrug them off or downplay them. If it was important enough for you to do it, it’s important for you to celebrate when you finish it.
Until next time,
