“One day you will look back and see that all along you were blooming.” ~ Morgan Harper Nichols, author and artist
As we age, many of us battle the nagging belief that we “haven’t done enough” with our lives. No matter how accomplished we are in any arena, we typically undervalue our achievements and overlook our daily victories. Worst of all, sometimes we focus too intently on our mistakes or missed opportunities.
Try this instead: Take inventory of all that you’ve done with your life so far, and admit that you deserve more credit than you’ve been giving yourself. Count every achievement, large and small, whether it’s raising a family, rescuing a shelter pet, renovating a house, learning to cook, earning a degree, climbing a mountain, or starting a business or a vegetable garden. When you list your own moments of “blooming,” which ones make you most proud? ~CL
