When is the last time you celebrated a victory?
Perhaps your favorite team just won the playoffs. Maybe you finally found a job or got a raise. Perhaps your cancer went into remission or your child took her first step. You lost 5 pounds or finished your first 5K. Maybe this was your first dry day. Or you finally managed to sleep through the night. Not a big deal, you say?
But what if, instead, you lost your job, or the cancer came back, or you came home drunk? What if your spouse came home drunk?
It would be a very big deal. So big you might not be able to sleep at all.
Victory abounds in the minor triumphs of each day. You can only win one day at a time.
How many victories did you celebrate today?
“The joy of life is made up of obscure and seemingly mundane victories
that give us our own small satisfactions.”
