Give yourself some credits for actually trying. Appreciate the joy and thrill of the journey. Take some accolades for the difference between where you used to be and where you are now because you’re doing a great job! πŸ‘

I deserve some accolades! πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ πŸ™Œ

Well, that’s a trending phrase from a comedy skit. But, I actually do deserve some accolades. Recently, I wrote about going through ‘Writer’s block‘ and it was one of the toughest struggles have had recently. When you’re trying so hard to do what usually seems like a second nature. You search in and out of yourself and all you see is just an empty blank space. Nothing just seems to interest you or bring out that side you thought you will always have or knew so well, blahblahblah. Read Writer’s block for more on that.
Well, today is not about the ‘Writer’s block‘ cos in a way, I feel I have a hold on it now and that’s all thanks to the wisdom of taking a *Chill pill* and do other things (in my case – I read books, went to see movies at the cinema, did few shoppings, ate a lot of Pringles and chocolates and even travelled to spend some time with Family) and now I feel a lot better with a clearer head.
So, back to the accolades, earlier this week, I finished some courses I started in the beginning of the year. Trust me, online courses are not as easy as it sounds especially if you’re the type that procrastinate a lot and you have a couple of other things to do, meeting up with weekly deadlines, availability of good networks and all. I’m just so glad that against all logistics that could have made me stop mid-way, I finished those courses excellently and the best part to that is assessing the year so far and knowing I’m actually doing what I set out to do, even way faster than I thought.
One secret I discovered during the ‘Writer’s block’ is that “Celebrate you for every big and small achievement you make as you chase your dreams. Allow yourself to refresh your soul and rekindle the fire from within to move on”. With that in mind, I believe you’ve seen why I started this post with ‘I deserve some accolades! πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ πŸ™Œ’ and indeed I gave myself, got from loved ones too (my brother even got me πŸ•, 🍦and paid for my movie ticket to see Rampage 2018 by Dwayne Johnson).

Truth is, there is a way you can feel less of yourself because according to your timing, you’ve not covered all you said you’d do. I challenge you to celebrate you for how far you’ve come and see how gratitude reciprocate.

And if you’re still having cold feet starting, you’ve got 8 months 1 week 4 days to be precise to still get your dreams going (That’s about enough time to conceive and have a healthy baby). πŸ˜‰
