Hello Angel Friends,
I was watching TV the other night and one person told the other how their parents used to “celebrate the little successes.” I thought wow – what a great idea…then the angels came to me nudging me to share that idea!
We’re often so busy that we don’t take time to acknowledge the little successes we have in life. The focus seems to be on the big things – landing the new job, getting married, or getting into college, etc. Yes, these are certainly events to celebrate – but so are the little success that led up to them!
What about the words of encouragement from your friend or relative that gave you the courage to apply for that job? The true success was in having the courage to apply. Why not celebrate your appreciation with that friend or family member – whether or not you end up getting the job! The success was in the trying!
Most married couples celebrate the anniversary of the day they were wed. But wouldn’t it be a nice tradition to celebrate the day of your first date? After all, without that first date you would have never been so blessed as to marry that wonderful spouse of yours!
Getting into college is cause for celebration for sure! But how about celebrating the completion of your college application essay – a true and compelling essay and one that you’re proud of. Who knows, it may have been that essay that put you on the front lines for acceptance into the college of your choice.
The importance of celebrating the small successes is that it helps build self-esteem. Each celebration creates a flow of “happy” thoughts out into your energy field. Giving attention to these positive moments in your life helps you to see all your strengths and achievements – not just the big ones. The more you acknowledge your accomplishments, the better you feel about yourself. The better you feel, the greater your sense of personal worth becomes, and as a result, the stronger your self-esteem.
So keep those happy thoughts and positive energy flowing! Begin to celebrate the small things in life – as the small successes you have accomplished have a tendency to accumulate and grow into the largest success of all, a healthy sense of self-worth!
Hummm, I’m going to make a list of those small successes I’ve had and start celebrating! How about you?
In Love, Light, and Angel Blessings, Pam
