It’s okay to celebrate your wins
Enjoy your wins.
It’s okay to be happy, to be celebratory.
It’s okay to reflect and be proud of all the effort you put in, to get to where you’ve gotten.
I think our culture has become very much focused on asking “what’s next?” after every day — win or lose.
The other day, my friend was remarking how he finished running a marathon. Our friend, after he finished his story, said, so when’s the next one (not even letting him enjoy the fact that he just finished one)?
If we don’t feel joy or enjoyment out from the hard work that allowed us to win, when will we feel joy?
