Never be afraid to pat yourself on the back. With having lived the amount of life that you have, you have garnered a lot of cumulative knowledge. You apply that knowledge to assist your lived experience best. To effectively relish in your accomplishments, you can remember the people who assisted you, give yourself the credit you deserve and take time to celebrate. Whether you are trying to maintain sobriety, make a significant life transition, or just feel like you’re in a better place now than you were before, taking the time to let those differences resonate makes all the difference. Seldom do we take the time to do this, so let the self-love settle in and take over.
Likely, other people helped you on your journey to success. Whether you are living sober now or you just got a new job, someone or some group of people held your hand for part of the journey. Who are those people? Let the remainder of their presence resonate over your body with a sense of overwhelming gratitude.
You did this! This is your accomplishment. You committed to sobriety. You got a new job. You decided to commit to marriage. Whatever the success story may be, give yourself the credit you deserve. Permit yourself to relish in your accomplishments.
Now, take time to celebrate. Throw yourself a party. Lean into whatever you are most proud of doing. Applaud yourself. Invite the people who assisted you along the way and express your gratefulness for their support. Write yourself a thank you card. These are just some ideas on how to celebrate but brainstorm a few of your own as well.
