How To Celebrate Yourself
Many of us in this world don't have confidence in ourselves, we tend to think most of the time that we are not perfect at anything, that is when doubt comes in to haunt us on the inside and out making us think that we are not capable of reaching for our own dreams and goals. Here in this article I will mention several ways in which you can celebrate the postiveness that is inside you. I have come to realize that some of these ideas really do help you start your day on a positive note.
Write a Love Letter to Yourself
You might be thinking to yourself right now why write a love letter to myself? Well often times this method of celebrating yourself does work by pretending that you are your own cheerleader and motivator. Write an inspirational note to yourself by adding a positive quote from a book, poem, or magazine. You can also add your own inspirational words of encouragement then when you are done writing the letter put it inside an envolope and mail it to yourself.
If you use e-mail why don't you send yourself an encouraging note before turning off your coumputer so that way you'll be able to see later the next day.
Personalize Your Own Screensaver
Set the screensaver on your own computer screen to showcase pictures or quotes that shower off the negativity inside of us. It works if you are really especific. Mention what you are currently working on in your life. Like for example you can set your screensaver to show a sentence or phrase that reminds you of your most important intention, like "I take great care of myself because I deserve to be happy and have a helathy life." or you can use simple phrases such as, "I honor myself everyday."
Keep A Childhood Photo of Yourself
Keep a childhood photo of yourself close to you. Now this is like a hobby that I love to do most of the time as I am growing up, I love to look through my own family albums and just look back and remember those times when I was four or five years old being careless and free, so full of couriosity, joy, and laughter. This is another tip you can do to celebrate yourself is to always look at a picture of yourself when you were a boy or a girl, really it will fill your heart once again with that same joy and laughter you used to have just by looking at that picture you will feel your childhood spirit coming back again once more, it does for me. With all the problems that we have nowadays as adults we often forget how our life's used to be when we were young only making us forget the true beauties that life holds.
Be Friends with Supporters not Negative People
I have found out that if you constantly keep hanging around with negative people who don't support or appreciate your gifts, then they will only smash away your postive energy and enthusiasm. Surround yourself with people who will or are willing to transfer their postive energy to you. I remember once my own Aunt (RIP) once told me that "You cannot choose your family but you can choose your friends." I have always been careful with who I hang out with because I do not like associating with people who will not be loyal and respectful friends to you, if they are just being negative to you then that is a sign that they are not you true friends and that you should start looking for someone else who will respect you and support you in a positive way. We all need a friend that can cheer us up we just need to look for the right type of friend.
Turn on Your Windshield Wipers
You may not be able to wipe off the rain that drops into your own life but on the positive side you can clear away the frustations, crititsms, and self-doubts away from you. Take some time off to see clearly by medidating, praying, journaling, exercising, walking outside, watching an inspirational movie, connec ting with supportive friends, having a massage or a session with a life coach . It is helpful to make for yourself your very own list of tools that work for you so that way you can have have handy for the next time the storm clouds let loose.

Pull Out your feel -good file
A feel-good file is a special place where you can save all the cards, e-mails, and letters people have sent to thank you or express what they value or love about you. Save all of those positive comments, accomplishments, and the joy you have given to others place themall in a special box or file folder. When you have a bad day, or lost the sight of your smile for a while you can pull out that collection and by reading all of those positive comments you'll realize that all of those problems that happen to you is not who you are.
