I have spent the entire day working and I didn’t feel, at any point, that I wanted to give up on it and just tell the higher-ups that this wasn’t something I could do. I think I did pretty good and I have hit the word count for the day, but I’ve still got plenty of time on my hands, so I am going to aim for a couple of more chapters before I go to bed. I am just really happy with the work I have done today and I hope it is good enough to be approved.
Today is a good reminder that, in spite of me doubting my own abilities, I know I can achieve things that I have probably never done before. All it takes is a lot of faith in myself and a lot of patience. I know that these aren’t always what make things easier for people, but it certainly does not hurt to know that you can do your best if you put your mind to it.
Today is also a reminder to everyone that you should be proud of yourself for everything that you can do and for everything that you have managed to achieve so far. Even if nobody else has told you so. Sometimes, we have to be our own best friends and hype ourselves up when we aren’t feeling like celebrating our wins with other people. And you know what? That’s alright. As long as you appreciate yourself and your work enough, there aren’t too many people in the world who can make you feel as though you aren’t right for it.
You are allowed to appreciate yourself for little wins when you are coming out of a major slump.
You are allowed to celebrate your big wins when you have achieved something.
You are allowed to celebrate your wins. Period. It doesn’t matter whether they’re big or small. As long as they mean something to you, they are significant and that’s all that ever matters. Xx
