invisible VICTORIES!

The world we live in is all about external success or achievement.  We are taught to look good, be good, achieve more, We measure our worth and others worth by their "external achievements"  These are the things you list on your resume...I graduated from college with a 4.0, I got a promotion at work, I pulled myself up by my own boot straps and get the idea.  All of those things are important, however there are also INVISIBLE VICTORIES that we would NEVER list on our resume and which often never get celebrated. 

In your journey to becoming healthier or  fitter there or make any positive change in your life there are many of these invisible victories.  You may even feel a pang of injustice when someone praises your new body size but never once recognizes all the hard work you've put into achieving it.  Every day that you choose to eat the right foods or the right amount of food or workout it is a victory.  Every time you make a healthy choice, no matter how small it is worth recognizing and celebrating!

This week, notice those INVISIBLE VICTORIES and share them with someone you love, or tell me about them (I'll get stoked for you) or treat yourself for them (not with food - you already know that)  Let the parties begin!
