I don’t know about y’all, but I feel like I get so caught up in my to-do list that I often forget to celebrate the little things. I don’t know when I stopped celebrating a new client booking, or a new sale in the b is for bonnie shop, but I did and that’s kind of sad. Life is filled with all sorts of victories, special moments and milestones that deserve to be celebrated.
We sold all but five seats for our April illume retreat! Some revamped marketing strategies yielded high results for our social accounts and our email list! I found my favorite champagne at the grocery on sale! All of these things are worth celebrating, no matter how big or small. So when did I allow myself to become so consumed with moving onto what’s next that I robbed myself of the opportunity to revel in my wins?
In our creative culture of working hard, keeping our noses to the grindstones, and hustling until we don’t have to introduce ourselves anymore, we rarely give ourselves the chance to soak up all the goodness of our successes. For a split second, we recognize that things went well, only to move onto the next big item on our agenda. We always press on, always keep going, and seemingly are always reaching for a win that’s bigger and more fulfilling than the next.
And in our wake, we leave behind big sales, exciting projects, and major accomplishments that go unrecognized. In our haste to look forward to the next grand goal on the horizon, we unwittingly lose sight of how far we’ve come. We take for granted all the wins, both big and small, that were forged out of all our hard work, our creativity and our fearlessness.
So let’s start celebrating again, friend! Let’s celebrate each booking, let’s celebrate the fact that it’s Friday, and let’s celebrate all those little things in your life that you’ve been too busy to give thanks for lately. Because if we look closely, we’ll find so many things worth throwing some confetti over! But more importantly, we’ll be blown away by the long line of accomplishments, wins and successes that have brought us this far. Cheers to the start of the weekend, friend!
