Celebrate Your Accomplishments

A while back, on Facebook and Instagram, I shared a post that resonated with a lot of people - it simply said "Celebrate Your Success." In the comments of that post, so many people shared with me both big and small accomplishments that they had achieved.

It was such a nice post because not only did people share their own accomplishments - they also gave likes and hearts to others (total strangers) that posted accomplishments as well!

It's an extremely heartwarming feeling to grow a community, and a community grows through support. Today, I'd like to share a new printable with you all, to further that support! 

Celebrate Your Accomplishments

The full resolution printable is available in the freebies section of the website (get the password when you join the mailing list) as well as in the files section of The Happy Break-up Facebook Group. I hope that when you download and print the file, you'll be inspired to share your own accomplishments as well! 

This image can be used simply as inspiration - print and frame or add to a bulletin board or journal - or you can use it as you would use the pages of The Happy Break-up. Print it out, and write your own accomplishments right on the page. Use it to build confidence and always remember the great things you have achieved! 

I'll be sharing my own version in The Happy Break-up Facebook Group and I hope you'll join me there and share yours as well!


Self-Care for Self-Preservation

Self-Care has been an important element of my life, even before I had ever heard the phrase "self-care." For me, self-care means retreating inward, and finding that balance between the pressure and requirements of every day life, and the mental rejuvenation needed to keep it going.

In January of 2016, I read a book that has changed my life. The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod invites readers to add 6 simple tasks into their morning ritual, that will make them more productive, thoughtful and happier. And it works! 

My absolute favourite parts of the Miracle Morning are meditation, positive affirmations, and journalling. If I can't get through the entire six steps for whatever reason, I always make sure that those three are done first and foremost. Today, I hit my 500 day streak in each of those categories, and it makes me feel amazing! Meditation helps me be still and aware. Positive Affirmations help me build confidence. And Journalling helps me reflect on who I was, who I am, and who I want to become. I highly encourage all who are interested to pick up on these daily habits, try it out for the entire month of February, and then come back and let me know how you've changed!

I'd love to hear some of your self-care rituals, your favourite positive affirmations or mantras, or anything else you'd like to share on the topic in the comments below.



P.S. for anyone who is wondering how I know that I hit my 500 day streak today, I use this awesome app called Coach.Me. It lets you choose the habits you want to form, and then check into them every day that you've completed the task. Highly recommend!
