You don't have to live stressed out and exhausted.
For those of us who struggle with the “doing it right” disease (yep, I said us because I too struggle with getting it right), it is important to have small celebrations to acknowledge the victories for the day (however small). Especially for those of us who are moving through a transition, trying something new, making changes in our lives. It is easy to get overwhelmed and discouraged.
In our house, we have the concept of the “Yay for the Day”. Every day we share our one thing that happened that day that we want to celebrate.
It can be:
- something we accomplished
- the way we handled a set back
- something we are grateful for
- someone we talked to
- something that surprised us
- or anything else that is a yay!
