Oh hey July! Didn’t see you coming. Wasn’t it just January?
Where has the year gone? More than half of the year has passed and I am not really sure how I feel about that. On the one hand I am like “yay 161 days until my birthday” and on the other hand I am like “what the heck have I accomplished since January 1st?”
Ever feel like that?
Chances are you’ve accomplished lots since the start of the new year but like me, you’re probably giving your small steps and small wins the side-eye like “that’s it.”
I am a huge proponent of taking stock of the things going right (and wrong) in your life and celebrating your wins. I do struggle with knowing what “win” warrants a celebration. Should I celebrate hitting publish on that blog post? Should I celebrate creating pretty digital goodies for you to download for a 3rd month in a row? Should I celebrate the fact that I’ve been mostly consistent in checking in with my accountability partner even if my weekly output has been less than ideal?
Yes, yes, and yes.
Same goes for you too darling. Small steps count.
Small steps toward the goals you’ve set before you are still steps and worthy of celebration. Sure your steps might not be perfect and you may even trip a couple of times but you’re stepping and that is all that matters.
Keep going. Ok.
Make July beautiful and remember small steps count.
BONUS: I had so much fun making and using last month’s worksheet that I made another one. This month we break down our one thing into small steps (and check boxes cause nothing feels better than DONE and CHECK ha!). Sign-up for my newsletter. I’ll be sending printable like these out to my Beautiful Life Makers every month (psst: if you’re already on the list check your in-box for the Small Steps printable).
