This week isn’t really going to be a lengthy post, I just wanted to give you guys a brief life update and some thoughts on being nice to yourself.
Over the past week I got a full time writing job.
In case you don’t know me personally, this is pretty much all I want out of life. I love to write, and getting paid for it is the dream.
Something I struggle with and strive to be better at is patting myself on the back when something good happens. It’s SO easy to punish myself when I mess up, or something goes wrong in my life, but not when I succeed.
Why is that so hard?
Part of me feels that I just don’t deserve it. Another part of me thinks that if something decent happens, it has to be dumb luck. While I know in my part that neither of those things are true, it’s a hard mental block to pass over. This year is about love, acceptance, and forgiveness of myself, so it’s something I am determined to overcome.
Any advice that any of you have is welcome for this.
I worked hard, I went through a lot to get this job, and I got it. Yay! As part of my resolution to love myself better this year, I am finding a way to celebrate.
Not quite sure how yet, but positive recognition is important and it’s something I will be giving myself.
How do you reward yourself when something good happens? Is it difficult for you as well? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
