i have reached some of the most treacherous heights on my mountain.
the jungles and wilderness haven’t been any better.
sometimes i have slipped,
i even fell a few times.
i have always picked myself up and started climbing again.
in my journey,
i have been victorious.
you don’t know how many jackals and beasts i have battled.
the times i was hungry and cold.
the many times i was cornered and had to fight my way out of darkness.
those are the things that have made me who i am today.
the thing is that i don’t celebrate my victories.
i just keep working and climbing.
ive been putting my focus on the things i don’t have.
no acknowledgement into all the things i have conquered.
see that’s the problem.
you can’t just work and not celebrate.
we aren’t robots.
celebration doesn’t need to be a big hurrah either.
it can be between good friends or just “you”.
get a cake and throw a candle on it.
give yourself “cheers” with a glass of champagne.
have a spa day and pamper yourself for all your hard work.
it doesn’t need to be extravagant.
it could just be treating yourself to an ice cream cone.
celebrate every win big or small.
“i got a raise”
“i got retweeted from a celeb i stan for”
“i got over that asshole”
“i moved to start my life over”
“i got fired from that hell hole”
“i finally met the wolf/hybrid/fox of my dreams”
“I’m ready and i finally learned”
when you start doing that,
it starts a new way of living.
a “gold digga” lifestyle.
you start to attract winning and winners into your life.
a true gold digga gets rewarded for even the smallest victories.
who doesn’t like that?
