Do you celebrate your victories? We all celebrate the large victories; but sometimes the small victories slip by without us even noticing. There is so much negativity in life sometimes. It is a very positive action to celebrate small and large victories. It is another way of counting your blessings. Celebrating the good things in life will promote a positive and thankful attitude. Nothing good is ever gained by being dismal, gloomy and negative.
Points to remember when contemplating celebrating our victories:
Notice small victories
Sometimes we overlook small victories. If they are overlooked or taken for granted; then we will not be able to celebrate them; or count them as blessings. Train yourself to start noticing small things.
Maybe you have trouble remembering to make your bed; but you made it first thing this morning. Celebrate! Or maybe you have been forgetting your friend’s birthday for years; but this year, you remembered. Celebrate! Perhaps you have been wanting to get more exercise; and you have managed to go for a walk every day this week. Celebrate! Notice the small victories, and celebrate them.
Start a blessings book
One way of coaxing ourselves to remember and celebrate the small victories is to start a blessings book. Write down when you have had a victory over something. No matter how small, jot it down, and celebrate it. If you are able to be faithful to writing your victories in your blessings book; you will love reading it later. It will strengthen your faith to see where you were, six months or a year ago, and where you are now.
When you are down and feel like you haven’t had a victory in a while; take out your blessings book and celebrate the victories you find within it’s pages. You will find yourself becoming thankful for all the small blessings in your life.
Replace negative with positive
Make a habit of recognizing negative thoughts; and replacing them with positive or thankful thoughts. We don’t always get to choose what happens to us; but we always have a choice of how we react to what has happened. If we react with negativity; and make no effort to look for something positive, then the circumstances control us. If we look and find something to be positive about, and celebrate the positive; then we are more in control of the circumstances.
Stomp yourself out of the pit
Circumstances in our life can sometimes throw us in to a pit of despair. We can’t always see a way out of the pit. There is a story about a donkey that I heard some time ago. It is told in different ways; but I like this video. I hope you enjoy listening; and that the message has a profound affect on how you view adverse situations from now on.
Celebrate Christ’s victory
If you can’t see any victories in your life, large or small; celebrate the victory of Christ. Celebrate your salvation. Celebrate the fact that you are not alone. For He has promised to never leave us or forsake us.
If you are not saved, celebrate the fact that you have an open invitation from a savior that loved you enough to die for you. Imagine having a friend that loves you that much. Think of having a friend, that not only forgave your sins; but took the punishment for them so that you could be free. The only friend that can wash your sins away, and make you white as snow. Celebrate having that kind of friend.
Celebrate someone else’s victory
So many times we feel jealous or envious of someone else’s victory; when instead we could forget about ourselves, and celebrate it with them. They say misery loves company; but victory loves company to celebrate with them, too. And most times as you celebrate their victory with them, you will find your own heart filling with joy to match theirs. Try it sometime and see the blessing you will be giving and receiving in return.
Help someone to achieve a victory
There is great joy to be had by helping someone else achieve a victory and watching them celebrate. Be alert to ways you can help others to achieve a victory. Perhaps there is something that you have learned that will help them achieve their victory, if you share it with them. Or maybe there is some way that you can be of service to them that would help. Perhaps you know of an organization that you could make them aware of, to help them achieve their victory.
