Personal victories can enhance your life as well as assist the whole of humanity. It is important to let others celebrate your victories, whatever they may be, large or small. So oftentimes we are given praise and respond by saying something negative. Learn to accept your personal victories, as it is felt by the whole of Creation whether you know that or not. It is equally as important that we not be jealous of others on their walk in life, but rather to be happy when they achieve personal victories. Slow down, celebrate your victories and those of others with joy because we all have the music in us.
If you feel that your personal victories have been few, perhaps you need to reexamine your verbal commitments. Have you promised to do something you have not done? Have you promised to do things even though your heart wasn’t in it? If so, it can be a personal victory to simply confront these things and acknowledge to another that you are sorry but you spoke in haste and cannot actually do what you committed to. This will free you up to fulfill other areas of life and it allows the other person who is counting on you to do something to know just why you are not showing up.
It is important to examine our words before we speak as we all to often offer assistance to those we care about without weighing the actions needed to fulfill those deeds. Look at your words that are spoken in haste, words of anger, love, gossip and pride. Slow down and examine your words and the effect they create.
This is an important time to focus on your victories, not your losses, and praise yourself when you achieve any forward movement. We are the victory when we dance in balance, live our words, and walk gently on Mother Earth with joy in our hearts.
“…find out where joy resides, and give it a voice far beyond singing, for to miss the joy is to miss all.”~ Robert Louis Stevenson
