I have never clapped for myself for any reason probably because I thought it would make me feel like a broken record. On so many occasions i have found myself clapping, and celebration other success and those not so successful.
Even with the small wins and progress, I have made so far. I sometimes see things as not successful enough or not big enough to Clap for. But, I have been wrong all along because there is nothing wrong with whispering to oneself “well done for that”.
As I am reflecting on the highs and lows of 2019, this morning when I work up early even though i wasn’t feeling well and I know I could manage to my office and through the day. I stopped for the first time and said to me, myself, well done for how far I have come.
Gone are the glory days of waiting for someone to praise your effort and clap. Looking back at every right, left turns I took in 2019. The small wins, failures and continuous progress that I have made. I have come so far and am proud of me. Giving up is not an option.
