All our lives, we’re wired to wait for big things to be happy about, a big announcement, big achievement are worth celebrating. But the process leading us to get that big announcement or achieve that big goal is important and there’s a rollercoaster of small successes that are worth celebrating that we ignore. (cute gifs are included)
Speaking of which, most of the time we get attached to big events happen that we get so sad while waiting to accomplish our goals, which delays our goal from happening.
So here’s how you can celebrate small successes and adopt a more celebratory approach to life.
1- Treat yourself
Go on that fancy dinner with your friends or alone too, buy something delicious or even a gift to congratulate yourself.
2- Take a day off
Spend a well-deserved, earned me day, celebrating and taking care of yourself.
3- Write your feelings
Writing your feelings about a happy event will help rewire your brain when things get bad one day.
4- Blast some celebrating music and have a dance party
Music is the body’s harmony, dance to the rhythm and forget the world around you, just celebrate yourself and your current reason for extreme happiness and joy.
5- Dress up for no reason
Dress up, for you alone at home, maybe cook a delicious dinner or go out have a fancy dinner with yourself
6- Go to dinner with your friends
Celebrating with your friends is a good way to share your happiness with.
7- Journal your small successful steps.
This way when you accomplish your goal, you’d have written proof of every little step you’ve gone through that lead you to your big accomplishment.
