The thing giving people do the least…



Time to CELEBRATE – Come On!

Sorry, I started thinking about a song and it just went.


The idea of celebrating yourself might seem . . . what . . . selfish? I hear this ALL THE TIME!


Time to stop this thinking.


Why? Because you are burning yourself out by doing things for everyone else. I already hear your voice saying, "it’s because _________ (my kids NEED me, my spouse has a lot going on, I’m really busy)."

PLEASE STOP.


I say this from the depths of my heart – stop burning yourself out. Everyone else will survive and thrive if you take some time for you. No more excuses!


RIGHT NOW – say, “I am going to do one small thing for myself today.”


Now, you might not know what to do, so here is a list of ideas (I’m not leaving you giving souls because you might default back to doing something for someone else):

  • Take a break. Maybe a little stay-cation. It might only be a 15 minute rest in a deck chair AND it needs to be a break.

  • Let the little kid in you go crazy. Dance, play paintball, draw, blow bubbles, or take a dance class.

  • Have a “celebration party” with friends.

  • Give yourself a social media shout out. (i.e. I have worked out for 230 days in a row, I am feeling good about myself today.)

  • Write yourself a gratitude letter. Name things you are grateful for in yourself.

  • Get creative in your workspace and put up happy pics or fancy wallpaper.

  • Do for yourself what you do for others. 😊


Celebrate you and a better version of yourself will appear.
