This is a week for celebration!
It is so easy to get wrapped up in the process of getting things done and to overlook the small successes that happen along the way, isn’t it? It’s so easy to just pass by the accomplishments when there is still so much to do before you get “there” – wherever there may be. This week I am going to pause for a moment and celebrate one of my successes.
One aspect of the new business that I am starting is to offer custom designed printable products for weddings and other special events. There are lots of invitation and stationary designers out there but there aren’t many that will create a design and then offer the digital file to the client to print on their own. This saves a lot of money as well as allows the client to have a hand in the creation process. I think of it as DIY meets high quality design. This is a photo of an invitation suite that I designed for a client and she printed and assembled herself (with the help of her fiance and family).
The wedding is next month so we are still working on various other paper pieces that will be incorporated into the day (programs, table signs, door hangers, favors, welcome kits, etc). But the invitation suite turned out great and the bride and groom are so thrilled with everything!
So back to celebrating. The thing is that I tend to be so hard on myself and expect so much perfection from myself that I completely overlook my successes. I’m not really sure why I do it but I know that it takes away from enjoying the process and the journey and the place I am in right NOW. Because really all we have is right now, this beautiful moment.
So I have a challenge for you this week…take a moment and actually pause and celebrate in your own little way when you accomplish something – no matter how small or insignificant it may seem. Choose to celebrate what you want more of in your life!
