Stand Tall and Proud
As the days get shorter, plants and animals begin the joyous work of preparing for winter, we celebrate festivals of abundance and harvest. Trees change their color and shed their leaves.
The autumn season is very much about your personal harvest – any benefits you are reaping in life. This is a time to celebrate all that you’ve achieved, all that you are, and all that you will become!
Whether you’ve moved through a difficult or painful situation, achieved significant success at work, conquered a new skill, learned a language, finally finished reading that book, organized your closet or simply that you just let go of everything that was holding you back for your highest good. It’s important to stop and acknowledge what you’ve achieved and be proud.
Enjoy the moment while you bask in your own pride, as you let the warmth of that feeling wash over you; and as you do, you feel the sense of achievement and smile for the whole world to see. Right now it’s about celebrating your successes. Be proud of how far you have come, and have faith in how far you can go.
One way to show your appreciation for personal success is to create a scrapbook. You can begin to gather all the things that you have already started collecting that bring great memories. Every year around this time you can look through it and make additions.
