Celebrating My Wins?

Raise your hand if you’re guilty of minimizing your success because you don’t want to come off as bragging?

Yup, I tend to downplay my wins. I’ve always had a hard time acknowledging and celebrating my wins. I don’t know if it’s a cultural thing or a gender thing, but there’s a great sense of guilt and shame that comes along with it for me. I’m still unpacking what that means and how to work through it.

Acknowledging & Celebrating

What I do know is that I’ve worked full-time (and held down multiple part-time gigs) while also building an online business. I’ve worked hard to show up for my clients and myself, every day. There’s a lot that I share and there’s a lot that I don’t share. I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety and gotten through it. There’s a lot of blood, sweat (lots of sweat as you’ve seen), and tears behind building an online fitness business on your own. There’s a lot of late nights and weekends working. And for me, it’s been worth it.

This is me giving myself the credit I deserve and finally owning my wins. I’m pausing to actually celebrate this win and then it’s back to working hard on the mission that I have. I’m here to help women get strong, from the inside-out, and I’m just getting started.
