It’s time to begin celebrating your triumphs. This is the fifth year I’ve posted about this timely topic; I love creating blog traditions! Today is the 186 day of 2016, which is just past the halfway point. It is the perfect time to celebrate you and your life by creating your very own “Ta Da” list. The Wishful Thinking Works “Ta Da” list is much more fun than a “To Do” list, because it’s for all the wonderful things you’ve already accomplished!
What have you accomplished this year that just six months ago seemed impossible or a distant possibility? (Feel free to include anything you have ever accomplished – this is the time to toot your horn.)
What new trails have you blazed?
What have you found the strength to face?
What promises have you kept?
What chances did you take?
What teeny, tiny or wondrously huge steps have you taken in the direction of your dreams?
I think that since folks will be celebrating today with parties, picnics and pyrotechnics for the Fourth of July, it’s a fantastic time to combine our patriotic triumphs with our personal ones – and celebrate them all!
Start now to make this Fourth of July your personal Independence Day. Complete your “Ta Da” list to light-up your life by counting your successes.
Most of us spend way more time thinking about what we haven’t done, than what we have done. It’s time to change all that and make 2016 your year of the have’s not the have not’s!
Celebrating success builds confidence, which moves us forward faster and makes us happier along the way!
Don’t be shy – this is the season for aiming high and lighting up the sky. List everything you have accomplished, big and small, and then, when you are watching “the rockets red glare and bombs bursting in air” congratulate yourself on your 2016 accomplishments thus far, and all the exciting ones that lay ahead. Let those bright lights and loud booms ignite a sense of personal pride just for you.
Have fun, and here’s to a perfectly positive Independence Day in 2016!
