Hey, you. Yes, you. You are awesome, and you shouldn’t be so hard on yourself. In fact, you should take a victory lap.

It’s human nature to downplay our accomplishments, whether from modesty or the instinct to simply move on to the next task. But sometimes, it is ok to take a moment to bask. From momentous occasions like graduating college or getting a promotion, to the everyday wins of finishing the all the chores or finally getting that last Ikea chair put together, sit back and savor your success. Whether leaving a messy relationship or dealing with the dishes, give yourself a pat on the back and enjoy your own greatness.
