Often in life, we don’t stop to appreciate the little things. We are so busy moving from one thing to the next, stressing about the things to come, that we don’t notice the unique occurances we have or the tiny victories we get everyday.
I have always been a big fan of celebration. We cram so much into our days that we forget to pause and say to ourselves “Self, Nice F***ing Job.” We don’t celebrate enough. We do the birthdays and holidays but we don’t celebrate the little things like, reducing your blood pressure medicine or being able to get up and down off the floor comfortably. We celebrate the accomplishments and achievements of others, but we have the tendency to overlook our own. You don’t stop and celebrate successfully pulling yourself under the bar in a squat clean or not having to stretch your chin over the pull-up bar.
These are all huge things in their own right and should all be celebrated as such. This week I have seen 3 people get not only their first unassisted pull-ups, but then finish the workout unassisted as well. THIS IS HUGE. Especially when you remember how much of a struggle it was when they first got here.
Many people forget what it was like to get that first pull-up. For others that first one seems like it will never come. I think it’s important for all of us to celebrate not only the milestones we reach but the collection of baby steps that get us there. Rarely do you just “get it”. Most of us combine hard-work, dedication, patience, stubbornness and time to achieve our goals. It’s time you celebrate the inches you’ve come as well as the miles you’ve gone to get yourself closer to what you are working for.
