Sis, Celebrate Yourself: Why You Should Be Happy About Small Victories

You’re going to be celebrating something very special soon. You’ll be so full of joy and so much happiness sharing your good news. It will almost seem out of this world how suddenly it all happened for you. Be ready for it. Expect it. It’s happening.

Recite those words over and over again until it marinates in your head and you actually see the manifestation happening right in front of you. And again…

But pause for a second…

Let’s rewind things a little bit and talk about how we get to this place mentally….the place of celebration. The place where we learn to celebrate ourselves even when the results seem slow , tedious, and inconsistent.

Have you ever accomplished something (big or small) that made you feel damned proud of yourself? You find a little more pep in your step and your smile is a little brighter because they don’t see the change or the slow results, but you do. Then BOOM, you get on social media or see someone’s current accomplishments that seems way bigger than yours in your perception. Then you think you’re being silly for feeling proud because your accomplishment seems so “small” now. That’s when fear, doubt, and comparison creep in your mind and you put yourself back in a box. The more we do this, the more we see others as competition and a threat to our goals. Sis, we’ve all been there: the feeling of adequateness and thinking we’re running out of time because we’re comparing our success based on age, timing, comparison, or results not happening fast enough. Even the successful people you admire and look up to face adversity, setbacks and things that don’t “post” about. Don’t believe the hype because you really don’t see a lot of people posting their “failures”.

We have become so used to seeing the end result of people winning materialistically that we have no idea that winning spiritually precedes it.  

There are those who are in rich in finances and broken spiritually. There are those who are together spiritually, but their pockets may seem small or doesn’t fit the ideal “successful” person society thinks we have to be. If you’re not where you want to be in life, don’t give up. When you get there, don’t stopThe first step in being a you that celebrates you is being gentle with yourself. You are meeting parts of yourself you have been at war with. The parts that you hide so deep within, but these are the parts that you must overcome. Your manifestation never stops when you’re truly living in your purpose. 

No matter how broken you think you are, you deserve to be celebrated. 

I don’t care what kind of person you used to be. I don’t care how dirty your past is. Every day is a new path of hope for everything that is yet to come. Remind yourself how powerful you are. You have been through things you thought would break…and look at you…LIVING. Surround yourself with others who celebrate themselves as well. Appreciate the real ones who tell you the journey isn’t easy and you will takes some L’s before you win. Turn the L’s into lessons. If you have a winning mindset, everything attached to you WILL win. The universe works in your favor when you START believing it should, and you actually BELIEVE you will receive everything you pray for. Every day, you get to choose who you want to be and how you will show up.

I’m here to give you a gentle reminder… IF NO ONE CLAPS FOR YOUR VICTORIES, BIG OR SMALL, CLAP FOR YOUR DAMN SELF!!

I’m praying for the woman you will be a year from now. I hope’s she happy, loved, apologetically living, living her purpose, and doing what’s best for her. May she remember to pray on good day and bad days and stay hydrated while minding her business. Most importantly, I hope she celebrates herself more often because there is no one on the earth like her. You’re do so much better than what you give yourself credit for.

Find Joy and let it lead you in life. ❤
