Those who follow me on Social Media know that I am kinda obsessed with Mondays. Monday is actually my favorite day of the week and I try my best to get others to see how amazing it can actually be!
Today, this beautiful Monday, I want to remind you all to celebrate yourself daily. Start today! Yes, we're half-way through the day, but don't worry, you still have time to incorporate this into your daily routine. Micro-celebrations count too!
This message actually came to me yesterday as I cleaned out my phone of old videos and photos of my Me-Made projects. As I was about to upload them all to my external hard drive, I made the decision to share them with my following.
After uploading about 16-17 creations to my Insta-Story, I remembered that I still had more projects I hadn't even documented. It was gentle reminder to myself that I am, in fact, a beast and I produce great work; which is important because I'm always beating myself up about how little I produce or how my pieces are trash.
Now I try my best to be intentional about everything I post on my social media, primarily because I want everything to be inspirational for others. I wasn't too sure about sharing because I didn't want to come off as boastful. I decided that people are gonna think what they want so I shrugged it off and proceeded with the posting.
What started off as me simply sharing my creations with the world ended up being a micro-celebration for me. This series of uploads served as a reminder that I'm a baddie and I'm worthy of self-love, honor, and celebrations.
I know myself well and could have produced way more since I moved back to Chicago in August. Although I could have been producing more, I've still been working hard and I make cool things. That is worthy of celebration!
I should also add that taking some time to recognize your accomplishments, "great" or "small", can actually help motivate you to keep up the good work or maybe even step it up! This one small act ignited a feeling that I want to experience more often, and I will.
We gotta stop being so hard on ourselves and instead be a lot more gracious. We're human!
