5 Tips to Celebrate your Growth

August 21 2017  •  Well-Being, Healing


Can I be honest with you? I’m concerned that you’re not celebrating your growth like you should be.

Trust me, I get it. You’re a busy woman! In between hustling it out at work, running to the gym, meal-prepping, and keeping up with your gal pals, it’s hard to find time to shave your legs let alone celebrate!

But here’s the problem - if you fail to stop and celebrate how far you’ve come, you fail to honor your growth.

And when you fail to honor your growth, you minimize the importance of growth in your life. And the worst part? When you don’t acknowledge the value of growth, it won’t be long until you feel like you’re playing a losing game - never getting *quite* where you think you should be. Never really “earning” the celebrating that you totally deserve.

If you’re anything like me, the voice in your head has probably started chiming in now with harsh statements like “what have I actually done that’s worth celebrating?” or “why should I celebrate when I still have farther to go?”.

It’s time to shut that voice up! You’re so worth celebrating that I’m actually going to lay out some tips to help you celebrate, like a pro.

5 Tips to Celebrate Your Growth

1. Keep it small but significant

A celebration doesn’t have to entail a 10-course meal or a vacation to Tulum, although, by all means, go for it! A celebration simply needs to be intentional and feel special - a candlelit bath, a day filled with all the things you love, a dance party with your best friend

2. Work it into your routine

Here’s a hack for ya! If you’re having trouble fitting celebration into your schedule, simply make it a part of your routine. For example, the last Friday of every month, pencil in “celebrate!”. When the time comes, put your party dress on and get partying!

3. Lock-in celebration accountability

If scheduling it in isn’t going to do the trick, why not get one of your friends or your life partner in on it? Every month, you’ll get together to celebrate each other’s growth throughout the last month. Now that’s an accountability win-win if I ever heard of one.

4. Give yourself time to soak it all in

A growth celebration shouldn’t be a quick donut binge followed by a pat on the back. Make sure you take the time to reflect on where you were, how far you’ve come, and all of the effort you’ve put in to get here. Soak up that progress. Let it feel good.

5. Let go of perfect

If we waited for perfection to celebrate, we’d be waiting our whole lives. Never hesitate to celebrate the small achievements or the little things. It’s not about celebrating *only* when you reach your big goal. It’s about celebrating the journey of growth along the way.

And the best thing about it? The more you grow, the more you get to celebrate. Woohoo!

Do you self sabotage?☄️Things are going well and you're on a streak of awesome but then that critical inner voice chimes in and you sabotage your success. We've all been there.🤦🏻‍♀️The good thing? If you have a strong sense of self awareness you can consciously decide to act against them. And did you know you can choose your thoughts just like you  choose your outfit? Differentiate the negative with the positive and separate from the destructive thinking. Develop your own set of unique values and beliefs. If you find yourself veering off, get back on course and choose the person you want to be.👩🏼‍🏫👩🏽‍🔬👩🏼‍✈️👩🏿‍💻Can I get an AMEN?!

When was the last time you took some time to yourself? Self-care comes in many forms but true self-care goes so much deeper.🍁When the busiest months begin creeping up on us, we start to treat it as a reward rather than part of the process. If caring for yourself comes easier during some parts of the year but not others, rest easy! I’ve created this challenge to jumpstart your self-care for the upcoming season.⭐️Join by clicking the link in my bio and I'll be in your inbox soon!⭐️ #OctoberSelfCareChallenge
We want divine intervention so that our lives will magically be easier. But what about asking for fortitude and strength so you can do what you need to do? What if you sought clarity on what you do control, what is already within your power?🙏🏼You might find your prayers have already been answered.

Did you know that how you choose to wait for that upcoming relocation, the response from the potential client, or the opportunity of your dreams is entirely up to you? And did you know that how you choose to wait for that next thing could drastically change your life?🙊If you wanna learn more about how to master the waiting game, sign up for my tribe letters by clicking the link in my bio👆🏼(Next email going out tomorrow)!
How often do you say "I wish I had more time for myself!" or "I don't have time for that" or "I'm SO busy".
And it's probably true that your plate is full but when it comes to designing our lives we hold the power to decide what and who we want to spend our energy on.
So before you make the assertion that you don't have time to workout or finish reading that book that's been collecting dust, you’ve got to understand what you’re trading off when you tell yourself “I Don’t Have Time”.
If you say you don't have time to eat healthy, it's an issue of priorities not time. So ask yourself this important question.
