Celebrate Yourself. Take Time to Be Proud.

A reality check every now and then is a good thing. Oftentimes, we get so caught up in the day to day that we don’t take a moment to reflect on how far we’ve come (well if you’re anything like me). Sometimes I am so focused on what I want to accomplish that I forget what I’ve already accomplished.

Be proud of you! Your life is unique. You’re already killing it. Here’s how you can prove it. Take a piece of paper and write down anything you’ve done–big or small–that has brought you joy.

Go as far back as you want! Did you complete a super cool science project in 5th grade that won first place? Write it down. It’s not silly. It’s not trivial. Your list is yours and it’s beautiful.

Whenever you get down on yourself—take out your list and read it.

See how inspiring you are?

Do this exercise with a family member or close friend and share your list with each other.

You can even share your list with me. I would love to read it. Email it to me at

I’m looking forward to celebrating you!
