Did I ever mention in my blog that I am pretty good at fixing a goal and dedicating my life to it? I think, I did, in the comment section of one post I wrote last week. I even confessed that I am not good with achievements ; I mean, when I achieve the goal, I throw it to the recycle bin and fix another goal ! It’s not a good habit! I understood. I started working on it.
It’s not good because , the path to any achievement is filled with struggles , hard work. And when we look back , we find only the struggle part and see no joy in the journey ! So, celebrating /accepting the achievement is one important part ! I am a goal driven person. I love measuring my journey with the number of milestones I covered. Since life does not stop after a milestone , I always focus on the next turn , maybe!
I was waiting for a career related thing for a while ; it was the only goal I had in my mind , until this week. Stress , waiting , uncertainty , hard work , preparation, planning -there are many ingredients in the recipe of this success ! 😉 I got what I was waiting for. Finally.
I took four days to digest the fact – that it happened . And this time , I enjoyed the moment with family ,with pizzas and many fried snacks ! A diet-free celebration. I did not try to be too humble and express like earlier times ” It’s nothing. I have long way to go.”
I also did not think if I have to work more , how I will manage time , how I will write blogs , what I should start reading now, what my next goal should be ,etc in last 4 days. I will. Maybe, from this weekend.
Since I talk nostalgia , stress , gender equality , stories from my journey , food , exercise – almost everything on this blog , I thought of sharing this happiness too here, with my readers [ I hate the word “followers”. Reader is good and it makes us equal.] who inspire everyday! Thanks for being there. 🙂
** How do you celebrate your achievements?
Do you feel happy instantly?
Do you take some time to make your mind still to feel the happiness? Do you cry when you are extremely happy ?
Do you feel guilty if you have less time to write ? 🙂 😀.. I would like to know!
