Find Time to Celebrate Who You Are!

Celebrate Yourself!Finding time to acknowledge what we value and hold dear, and celebrate it, is a worthy pursuit!  In her Life Attractions Blog, Dr. Alice Vlietstra recently wrote a very interesting post titled “Celebrate Your Strengths.” In it she talks about the importance of celebrating yourself and recognizing the values that you hold close to your heart.  She offers the idea of using some of our holidays — like Presidents’ Day — to remind us to do that.

What a wonderful suggestion! Holidays provide us with a built-in pause in our schedules. And many of the holidays also offer reminders about values and/or role models that we can reflect on. Any opportunity to pause and reflect is an opportunity to find greater depth and new insights.  It is also a chance to refresh and energize yourself — all in the brief span of a moment!

Indeed, finding time to give yourself messages of self-validation is a very powerful and accessible source of energy.  As much as the voice of the inner critic undermines and depletes you, your self validations are like vitamins for the soul!

Think about what Dr. Alice Vlietstra suggests in her post. How do you celebrate yourself? What qualities do you most value in yourself? Don’t be shy. The more you validate yourself and recognize your good qualities the more energy and resilience you will bring to your life!

When’s the last time you paused to reflect and celebrate who you are?  Leave a comment or drop me a line – I’d love to hear!

    Hi Paula,

    Saw some of your articles on ezinearticles and have had a look through your site. Good stuff!

    Can I please introduce you to my own article site It’s a new site and is for authors in the holistic/natural medicine and wellness field only.

    It would be great if you could post some of your excellent work there and obviously link back to your site. I’m more than happy to add new categories if the current ones are insufficient.

    As I said, the site is new, so it can only get bigger and better!

    Thanks – Richard

  2. Hi Richard – I appreciate your kind words and would love to post articles on your site (which looks excellent, by the way). I look forward to being a part of your new enterprise!
