No matter big or small, it’s always important to celebrate those changes in our life or environment. You can start any where? Sometimes its a desk or a chair, it might be dusting it or removing papers that have been there for a long time. Just by starting to go through a stack of papers and deciding if we can finally let it go or if it needs to be kept. It is these small steps that lead to our victories.
As we clear what no longer serves us we start to feel lighter. This helps to create opportunities that start to materialize in our physical world. When you pick something up in your house or office. Focus on how it feels to you? When you hold it are you feeling heavy or lighter? Does it make you feel happy or sad? This will help you decide if it has a place still in your life.
Even looking at your life. Are you happy where you are in your life? Did your life get better in this last year? Stay the same or get worse? Is this something you can change or is it something that really is beyond your control. If it’s not something, you can change. Then make only changes to the places in your life that you do have control over and see if something doesn’t start to move and change for the better.
Even if it is the smallest victory celebrate or give gratitude for it. These are building blocks that help build momentum for changes that we need. If you’ve had to deal with an extremely abusive relationship in your life or work life. We sometimes go through periods of forced sabbatical. This is the Universes way of giving us time to heal.
All of us have goals or things that we want to do some day? It’s those moments, that you finally achieve them and are really happy or you come to the realization that what was all the Hoop La about? It might be because we realize we were really chasing someone else’s dream for acceptance. When you really own your victories, it lets you know that other thing are within reach as well.
In some cases that bucket list is starting to get whittled away at. It’s like looking at a Rolodex of our life and gauging where we’re at and how far we’ve come and how far we’ve yet to go. Sometimes its a feeling that we are finally ready for one of those things on our list that never quite felt right before now. The Universe, can also be a pain in the ass too. Where nothing seems to line up to allow you to take the next step to complete the final piece of the task.
The nice part about these victories is that they’re yours. No one can ever take them away from you! It’s not about people pleasing. It’s about testing and pleasing yourself for your personal growth as a person. Sometimes we like what we’ve become and other times not so much. We are almost like our own person clay. We can always recreate ourselves and change what we don’t like. Whether it be ourselves, home, lives, career or friends.
We are either a completed piece of art or a work in progress depending on how we choose to look at ourselves!
