Today, I was able to put on my wedding rings and wear them comfortably all day. Today, I was able to walk through the grocery store to buy herbal tea. Today, I was able to sing my children their good night songs. These are a few of the small victories I’ve been blessed to experience since my operation to remove my thyroid earlier this week.
Small victories are such hopeful events. They can sometimes get lost amid the impatience to get back to full steam. Yet, it is only through these victories that strength and stamina are built back up. Celebrating the victories allows for a sense of accomplishment, even when the “list” doesn’t get completed.
Through small and simple things are great works accomplished.
Celebrating the small victories allows for more reasons to celebrate, until ultimately, the grandest goal or greatest desire has been accomplished.
This doesn’t just apply to people recovering from a surgery or illness. These victories should be celebrated whenever they occur. The positive reinforcement allows for greater growth in those areas in which people are changing.
So here’s to the small victories! I hope you all may have many, many victories in the future.
