Than wish a snow in May’s new-fangled mirth;
But like of each thing that in season grows.”
Last year at this time I was writing about celebrating your successes based on this quote by Wodehouse. I think its something we often forget to do.
P. G. Wodehouse
Why is it so easy to celebrate a friends success but when it comes to our successes over the year we tend to dismiss them. It is the consistent small successes in our quest that we should celebrate. Don’t wait for the published book, celebrate today!
Today, take time to write down all of your successes over the year. Maybe you finished a story you have been struggling with for months, or you got a poem published, or you showed up for every meeting of your new critique group. Maybe you achieved your writing goals this year or maybe your successes are all personal. It’s so easy to talk negatively to yourself about what you haven’t achieved…today is a day for celebrating what you have!
Now get back to work!
