Celebrating The Small Successes

10:00

My blog turned 6 this year, and I didn't celebrate. I haven't even written a post about it. Over the past few weeks, I've been wondering why I didn't celebrate, when it's such a good milestone for me and would've been a great chance for me to celebrate how far I've come over the past six years, both as a writer/blogger and personally. 


And I realised, I need to start practising what I preach. I've been planning this blog post for quite a while now, but I just hadn't got round to writing it. So, if I can sit here and type away to you guys about celebrating the small successes, then surely I need to start celebrating my own?

If each step forward you take, you're getting closer to your overall goal, then why shouldn't you be celebrating yourself along the way? Counting each win is so important for both your wellbeing and your motivation to achieve. 

By celebrating the small successes and rewarding yourself in whatever way you see fit, whether that's treating yourself to some new clothes or going out for a meal or just binge-watching your favourite show and taking the evening off, you're, in effect, telling yourself that it's a good thing to achieve, which will, in turn, make you want to achieve even more. It's basically boosting your own morale. 

It's important to celebrate each and every success as they happen otherwise if there's no reward at the end of it, what's the point? Sure, a sense of achievement can go a long way, but why not take it even further by actually celebrating your successes. Whether that's reaching a new pageview milestone, landing a new job or just getting out of the house for the day. Success is completely unique to you and it's vital that you celebrate your own successes and be your own cheerleader because at the end of the day, if you're not happy with what you've achieved, then chances are you probably won't want to keep achieving things and you'll just give up. 

You could try writing down your goals and whenever you achieve one, have a little celebration, reward yourself and you'll find life to be so much more rewarding. 

Anyway, I'm off to celebrate my six year blogaversary in my own way - by buying myself a bunch of new clothes and make-up and books.

  1. Happy 6 years of blogging! These milestones are so important and they should be celebrated. My blog turned 5 this year, and I'm ashamed to admit I didn't even remember until several days later. I blame lockdown!

  2. Congrats on 6 years, Beth! That is remarkable that you've reached such longevity in blogging. Says a lot :)

    These days I always try to remind myself to "stop & smell the roses"...to pause and recognize little steps I've made in this journey - whether its in my writing or in website management for instance, and give myself a pat on the back (though your reward-to-self of shopping sounds way better!)
