What is the last thing you celebrated?
I found this question in a series of journaling prompts and it made me a little sad. I certainly celebrate holidays and birthdays and my son's achievements. But I rarely celebrate my own accomplishments.
That is kinda sad. The last one I can think of is a job promotion 16 years ago. What the hell!
I must have achieved something in the last 16 years that I can celebrate. Time to change the routine. This year I choose to celebrate more. I choose to celebrate the little things I accomplish each day. I choose to celebrate my progress towards larger goals. I choose to celebrate my accomplishments large and small.
I am starting today by celebrating the gains I have made over the past 2 years with my health. Through hard work, research and lots of trial and error I have made huge gains. That deserves more than a footnote in my mind. I choose to celebrate today.....with a new journal.
I have tried for many years to make journaling a habit. But try as I might I could never get the habit to stick. Time to try something new. A beautiful new journal....not a cheapo like I usually get. And a pen. A journal and a pen I love. So I did. I love the smell and feel of the journal I picked. It inspires me to write.
It will be a place to record my thoughts and the bits and pieces that make up our lives. Those bits and pieces are important. They deserve to be remembered.
So I ask you this.....what is the last thing you celebrated.
