The Old Wise Door # 1: Celebrate The Little Victories
In my house I have a door
and upon that door I write
every wise old thing I find
to heal my heart with light.
Did you quit biting your fingernails for a day? Did you get a head start on a project? Did you cook dinner even though you normally don't know how to cook? Find $5 on the ground? Make a healthy choice? Not kill your boss?
Seek and ye shall find small daily victories just waiting to reveal themselves to you. Take a moment to savor and celebrate these victories in small, healthy ways. A ten second victory dance can be most rewarding.
