“Male or female, if my name were either Don or Dawn, I’d be up at sunrise to celebrate the glory that is me. ”
― Jarod Kintz
This week, I would like to take a few minutes and talk about celebration.
We live in a world where we are constantly growing, constantly looking for that one weakness that is holding us back. We are striving for answers in a world of questions and yet, I believe we often forget to acknowledge and celebrate all the achievements and love along the way.
How often does someone give you credit, only for you to turn right around and invalidate the praise because you don’t feel worthy enough or you haven’t done enough to warrant such a compliment? I know I have done that in the past and I actually think this is doing both you and the person giving the credit a grave disservice. Its as if you are pinching off life or squeezing the blood from your veins. That praise, that acknowledgment, that recognition of something well done is what we live for and we are so wrapped up in all that we are doing we forget to allow ourselves the opportunity to enjoy the success, moment by moment.
This week, as you are doing and being the best person you can be, when someone gives you praise, practice letting it all in. Some other human being has noticed something great about you and it has touched them enough that they want to say something to you about it. Do not pinch this off, this an effort to connect and it should be something that we revel in, not something we push away!
As always, leave a comment if something resonated with you!
Peace and Love….
