V is for victory…

26 Apr

Victory means different things to people just like success does. Victory to some could be simply leaving the house when they’ve been too depressed to do so for months. To some it could be finishing a race they couldn’t have won this time last year. Or walking ten steps when last week they could only do two.  It doesn’t always have to be something as grand as winning a Super Bowl ring to be a victory although we’d all love to have one.

Appreciating small victories allows us to be grateful for everything that comes our way. Think of the fifth grader that makes strides each month and is finally reading on a higher level. He may not be on his grade level but he’s improved since the previous school year. The state and the school won’t count it as a victory in the same way the student will. For him, getting out of the reading class with younger students and moving with a group closer to his age is almost as good as being on grade level.
Don’t let anyone tell you what you should celebrate. Those are the people who celebrate the big things forgetting that it’s the little things that brought them where they are.

    Small victories are important, always the little things in life that mean so much.
