It is easy to get caught up in the stumbles. It is easy to focus on all the things that need done or that the missteps that we have taken along the path.
I often talk about focusing on gratitude or changing my perspective when I get stuck in the previous thought patterns. I talk about prioritizing what is important, like family. What about the combination? I think it is time to prioritize high fives. I think it is time to prioritize all the things we did right over the last year, decade, or even just in the last hour.
We may make some mistakes but we also have a lot of successes. I think it is about time we started patting ourselves on the back for some of our wins.
I'm grateful for high fives. I'm grateful to prioritize family. I'm grateful to see how even little successes can lead to big steps forward. I'm grateful to keep doing my best to model self-kindness for my children. I'm grateful to get to celebrate their wins with them and that they get to celebrate my wins with me. I'm grateful for an amazing husband to cheer me on and give me those high fives.
When was the last time you actually gave out a high five? When was the last time you patted yourself on the back for all the successes you have had?
May today remind us that every little step moves us closer to the goal. May we celebrate each little win, each little step, no matter how far the goal still seems. Have a beautiful day!
