Celebrating small milestones are so essential to making it to the finish line. Often times, experts claim that if people make too lofty goals they will quit before achieving them. These people will convince themselves that they cannot reach their grandiose desires because they fail to celebrate the small victories.
Let’s not do that. When a baby takes their first step, the world stops. Parents, guardians, loved ones gather around to capture the momentous moment. To think, such a single step garners immense praise. Somewhere between that first step and now, we’ve failed to celebrate the small victories. We only commemorate the marathon victories and not the single steps.

Here’s five accomplishments that I’m proud of from the month of January!
- I successfully saved for my root canal and crown procedures. Medical bills can be expensive but I don’t want to nickel&dime my health. So my “commas” took a hit.
- I wrote 3 blog posts this month. Woot Woot!
- I tried the Whole 30 diet/ meal plan for 10 days before I had an allergic reaction. You live and you learn!
- I’m on track for my church’s plan to read the bible in a year.
- I read 3 books this montha. Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success by Steve Harvey
b. Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates
c. Show Your Work! by Austin Kleon
Bravo me. Round of applause (*burp*, ‘excuse me’… I wonder if anyone can catch that reference). I wonder what triumphs next month holds?
