Yesterday I was primarily focused on meeting a deadline for a client. So I ate breakfast, lunch and dinner at my desk. Not much room for celebration, eh?

But this is the day that marks one week … I can’t falter now.

So I dug deep to find the celebration in a day of intense work, and this is what I came up with.

  • I asked for a day of little interruption and received it. I asked my boyfriend to fend for himself so I could focus on work and he honored my request. If you don’t ask for what you need, there is very little reason to expect that you’ll get it. I celebrated myself by asking for what I really needed.
  • My second gift to myself arrived from China. An iPad dock connector to VGA adapter cord. Several of my presentations are supported by slides and I’ve found that borrowing someone else’s laptop often leads to wonkiness, which distracts me. Now I can load my slides onto my iPad and connect that to a projector. This will help me move forward with the speaking part of my business.
  • I allowed myself to walk away from work and wind down at the end of the day. At 9pm I shut down my computer, project not yet completed, and let myself unwind. I watched an episode of Under the Dome (a tear-jerker) and an episode of Perception.
  • I captured a stocky little hummingbird on film. I got both still and video images of this adorable little hummingbird drinking from my feeder. Moments like this are golden!

Sometimes you celebrate yourself by doing what needs to be done to stay in integrity with your word. Sometimes celebrating yourself means asking for what you want and allowing yourself to receive it gracefully and with gratitude. And sometimes, celebrating yourself means knowing when it is time to allow yourself to relax … or capture a fleeting moment with nature to relish for a lifetime.

How did you celebrate you yesterday?
