Be proud of your accomplishments!

See how far you’ve come. Be proud of yourself. If nothing else, one day you can look someone straight in the eyes and say, “But I lived through it, and it made me who I am today.” 

There has been a lot of talk in social media lately about all the ways to improve yourself.  They offer advice, exercises and books on ways to be better.  I think that is fantastic if it's what your heart is telling you to do, then go for it.

But what if that is not what your heart is telling you?  

Think for a minute and ask yourself, When was the last time I was proud of myself?

Contrary to popular opinion, being proud of who you are and what you have been through is not a bad thing.  In fact, it is a way of loving yourself.

What have you done that deserves a pat on the back?  A project at work?  Getting good grades in school?  Landing a job after months of unemployment?  Starting a blog?

No matter what it is, be proud of yourself.  You have done a wonderful thing and you deserve a shiny purple star. Way to go you!

Today, take a moment and think of all the things you have done and all the things you have been through.  Then smile and give yourself a hug.
