The most beautiful things are not associated with money; they are memories and moments. If you don’t celebrate those, they can pass you by. – Alek Wek

I love challenges. I set goals, and do everything to accomplish them. Then when I do, I move on to the next goal. As the head of Head of Human Resources for many years, I relentlessly celebrated the achievement of others on the job, but I never stopped to celebrate my own personal achievements. In recent years I came to value the importance of celebrating life’s triumphs. I guess it comes with maturity. There is something gratifying to it. Besides, it leaves a lasting legacy on those close to me.

Oh how to celebrate? The question was asked and many Bravely Expressed  and jumped in. But I found Sarah Starrs list of ways to celebrate insightful. Here I share my top favs!

13 Ideas To Celebrate Achievements:

  1. Make a booking at a restaurant you’ve always wanted to eat at.
  2. Invite all of your friends over for a pot luck and before you sit down to eat, go around and ask everyone to brag about something (big or small) that they’ve achieved recently.
  3. Spend an entire day doing whatever you find most relaxing.
  4. Dance! Honouring our emotions through movement is powerful.
  5. Write a list of everything you learned from this experience.
  6. Start success journal.
  7. Spread the love: offer to help someone who is chasing a similar dream.
  8. Write a blog post outlining how you achieved your goal.
  9. Take a selfie to memorialize the big moment. Share on Instagram
  10. Get dressed up… just because.
  11. Have a staycation and spend some time exploring and enjoying all that your city has to offer.
  12. Write a letter of gratitude to someone who helped you get there.
  13. Take a few long, deep breaths and ask yourself: what does celebrating look and feel like to you?

Need help setting Goals? A mentor or coach can help. You’d be wise to get started and not forget to celebrate small and big wins.

Cheers!
