Celebrate Everything

What would my daily life be like if I intentionally celebrated not just the big stuff but the little stuff, too? Sometimes I think I get so wrapped up in the big picture goals that I forget about all the little baby successes I had along the way. So I’m trying something new…

 

This week I am celebrating…

1. Seeing “Doctor of Philosophy” for the first time below my name on the graduate student photo directory in the lobby. I’m not a PhD yet but seeing those words reminded me how excited I am to be a day closer to my degree.

2. Eating right. I just got back from my Weight Watchers meeting and I lost four pounds!

3. The first real snow in Columbus. It may only have been an inch or so but it was a glorious powdery delight to me and Madigan.

 

I think I’m going to try to do this every week. What about you? What little (and big) successes can you celebrate this week?

love, elizabeth

This is such a great idea! I may just have to do this myself :)

It's good to be reminded that the little things are just as worthy (if not more so)of celebrating!

I love this post! I think it is so important to celebrate the little things, along with the big. In fact, I sometimes feel that the little things, really are the big things!!!
