We approach the end of the year and it is a great time to look back and appreciate what has happened in the past year. Take a few minutes to look back over the last year, what have you accomplished? What have you changed or maybe what are you in the midst of changing. Maybe you have changed jobs, had a baby, gotten into a new relationship, gotten out of a relationship you didn’t want to be in, done something that you have never done before. It could be something big such as taking a vacation to somewhere you never thought you would go or hiking a huge mountain by yourself. It could also be something else, such as cleaning your home, cleaning out clutter, cooking something new. And don’t compare to what other people have done. Don’t minimize what you have done just because “it’s not a big deal.” You may have a small success, maybe a big one, AND it is a success nonetheless. Notice those things and give your self come kudos. See where you have been and where you are now. Celebrate yourself.
