Today is the 184 day of the year, which is just past the halfway point and time for my sixth annual post about YOU!
Now 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!
We are often way to hard on ourselves, not giving ourselves enough credit or kudos for all the things that are right with us and our lives. Make today your personal Independence Day by taking a moment to reflect what makes you and your life worthy of celebrating!
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 this week 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 2017 your year of the have’s not the have not’s!
Celebrating success builds confidence and noting what is right in our lives makes us happier and more resilient. Go for it!
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 2017 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 2017!
