I was going through the notes on my phone and found the following from about a year ago.
Celebrate the small wins:
1. Got a good night sleep without sleeping pills.
2. Did some meditation and affirmations to intentionally healing myself.
3. Talked to God and asked him for guidance and support.
4. Appreciated the flowers when I opened my bedroom windows.
5. Decide on always asking myself the question “What positive meaning can I find from this situation?”
6. Decide to enjoy what I am doing more intentionally.
7. I was excited for a solid work day without any meetings or disruptions.
This exercise is designed to help anyone who is struggling with seeing hope or who feels bad about themselves. We often focus on our troubles or the things that are wrong in our lives. We do this not because we are negative. In fact, we are just simply trying to give more attention to these issues so we can figure out a solution, right?
I have been addicted to thinking about and solving problems for years and I can tell you, it can be very tiring and not very efficient . I would often beat myself up because I couldn’t always find an answer or fix the problem. Then, I would end up feeling bad about myself because I didn’t know what to do. Does this sound familiar?
What is a better way to seeing hope faster and feeling better about ourselves? Simply switching our focus from “What is wrong?” to “What is right?”!
We need to know that success is not just those BIG changes we make. It is very often some of our super small wins. After a certain amount of time, these small wins form the big wins that you have always wanted. If you intentionally write down your daily small wins for just one week, you will see a huge mood shift within yourself.
I challenge you to give it a try and share with me your results. You can thank me later for seeing hope again and feeling better about yourself.
