Yesterday, I shared a small victory with my mother, that I achieved out of lack. I was unable to find what I needed, so I made a better alternative work. She immediately scolded me for not telling her what I didn’t have. I made a major stride in something I tried for months to accomplish, however she questioned my failure of going the usual route. Without thinking, I asked her why she wasn’t helping me celebrate my victory?

I’ve been reading Brené Brown’s book, ‘Dare to Lead’ and I cam across this excerpt yesterday:

‘Whether we’re leading a group or a member of the team, whether we’re working in a formal or informal recognition program, it is our responsibility to say to the people who work alongside us: “We’ve got to stop and celebrate one another and our victories, no matter how small.”‘

So I had an epiphany, it’s time to change my ‘celebrations’ to my ‘VICTORIES.’ So, here we go. I’m excited to share that it was easiest to create my two list of positives, rather than my list of lack. So without further ado, here they are!
