Celebration of Success
Do you ever have one of those moments when you are are so freakin’ proud of someone you love that your heart could burst?
That’s how I feel when my clients make such amazing progress they are ready to “Graduate” from our sessions. Sometimes I jump up and down and do the happy dance to celebrate! There’s no use trying to stop up the feelings of joy when they wash through – I’ve learned to set propriety aside and just go with it.
And right smack in the middle of my enthusiastic exhortations to “GO GIRL!” lies the spark of an answer to balancing our society’s focus on all that looks WRONG. Rather than focusing on the prospect of imminent doom (as presented by mass media), we have another CHOICE!
Sure, we responsibly examine our lives, set goals and strive for self-improvement….I’m all for that – BUT there is one sure way to shift gears into an endorphin-filled state – and that is to embrace the moments when another precious spirit takes a step into a healthier life.
You get to ride the wave of joy as a two-for-one – help them “anchor” their positive state with a mini-celebration – and help YOURSELF remember that we are all in this together. The success of any one of us shows what’s possible in the world for EACH of us.
And just in case you need an example, I will be sharing a story later this week of one of my client’s transformations – from dejection into bubbling laughter – guaranteed to show how the simplest steps can bring the most joy.
In the meantime, you KNOW I would love to hear, ’cause I’ll celebrate WITH you – what are YOUR “Burst-with-pride” moments?
