Have you ever worked on a project so exciting, that finishing the project in itself would be a celebration for you?
I’m working on a very super exciting project, something I’ve been putting on hold for a really long long time. And as the project fills me with excitement and eagerness and loads of enthusiasm, I just tossed myself a thought..
I told myself happily, “when you complete this project, you should buy yourself something special!” The thought instantly filled me with joy, and as I wondered about what is it that I really wanted to buy myself when my project hits ‘Successfully Done’ – I was blank..
I wasn’t blank with the lack of ideas, but rather I was blank cuz completing this project is going to be a beautiful ‘gift-to-self’ in itself. There was nothing more I expected, other than enjoying this journey and not hurrying myself to the destination.
I really scanned through various gift choices like a vacation, shoes, loads of shopping, enrolling into courses, learning new skills/ getting certified ……
But seriously, nothing …absolutely nothing, matched the joy that I would bring to myself by successfully completing this project.
And it feels so amazing! Feels like I’ve come full circle, from ‘not knowing’ my purpose in life, to feeling desperate to find it, to attempting to reach it, to making lists of ‘Must have’s’ and finally giving it all up ,not on compulsion but by a deep choice that really tells me who I am!!
I’m still in this journey, and I still do not know who I am!! But this milestone, needs to be celebrated 🙂
And the best part is that the milestone in itself is a celebration & the celebration completely lies in the milestone!!
Offering gratitude, loads n loads of it!
