Think about what you’ve completed, or achieved recently. Perhaps you completed a challenging piece of homework , or you got out of bed on a rainy morning to show up on time for a class.
Today, celebrate the achievement - no matter how small the achievement is, or how long ago this was achieved.
You don’t have to do anything big to celebrate the success. Just telling someone about your achievement , treating yourself to a small snack , or just simply giving yourself credit are forms of celebration!
What did you achieve recently? How did you celebrate your own success? Do you find it difficult giving yourself credit for your achievements?
I was able to get 8 hours of sleep every night for the past 1 week. Getting enough sleep is something I have been struggling with for years. This achievement has definitely helped me with feeling more refreshed and energised every morning. I feel proud of myself for this!
I managed to save enough money to buy my maintenance meds. Might seem trivial but it feels like a big accomplishment to me since I stopped depending on my parent’s support when it comes to “extra” medical expenses for many years now and it’s been tough.
Recently I’ve finally been able to eat 3 meals a day, I’m not caring about what I consume so much I celebrated by eating my comfort foods HAHAHA and no it’s not that hard to give myself credit anymore I’m making it a habit not to discount myself
I finally moved forward in my school project after being dormant for too long. I was beating myself up for not starting earlier, but I realised once I was kind to myself and talked myself to moving on (instead of telling myself I have to do it or else) I was able to actually do something. This was really small, but became huge after it didn’t go away. I think I should tell myself that it’s good that I did something rather than repeat that I should’ve done something sooner. I think that change would be a celebration in itself.
I was able to help carry chairs even though it was heavy for me. I also managed to wake up for an online class in the morning despite sleeping through my alarms. I celebrated by playing bondee and treating myself to a nice cold drink. I do find it difficult to give myself credit though, sometimes I think I did not do enough/a lot or that I do not deserve it as other people supported me.
