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!

This Midwest weather today is giving me all the feels.🌲🌤🚙
The pressure to do more/be more is real. It causes women (myself included) to second-guess themselves, change who they are, and then wonder why they feel disconnected and unworthy no matter what they do or achieve.
This is a pressure that fuels anxiety, depression and obsessive-thinking. This is a pressure that we ALL need to be aware of so that we can recognize it when it presents itself and step away before we fall right into it.
I’m sending out an honest-as-they-come email to my community tomorrow that looks this pressure straight in the eye and calls it out for what it is: toxic b.s.! Click the link in my bio and sign up if you could use some encouragement reclaiming your own incredibly worthy path.✨
Sunday morning reminder: You are enough. ♡
Seems like just yesterday I was feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and stuck. Stuck in an identity that wasn’t mine. Overwhelmed from the high-standards I placed on myself. Exhausted from always needing to do more, be more and achieve more.
This morning I looked through an old notebook that said “I fear slowing down because it will mean I’m lazy, worthless and unsuccessful”.
That was years ago and today my days are slow, intentional and purposeful. All the things I was so scared to have, yet, I feel more abundant and successful and worthy than I’ve ever felt.
You don’t need to follow perfection to live an abundant and successful life. You don’t need to be extraordinary to be worthy. There is so much joy in ordinary and simple you just have to slow down to find it.
