This quote made me cry.
Because we writers forget to celebrate what makes us happy. Our victories. Our achievements. Our writing goals that have been reached.
Make time to celebrate them.
Make time to pat yourself on the back and tell yourself, "You did well! You're doing great! You'll do even better tomorrow!"
Make time to look back at how far you've come.
Make time to give yourself something you've been craving, something you've been denying yourself for all this work. A day off. A night out. A week of doing nothing.
Make time to be a kid again.
Remember how you jumped up and down or grinned until your cheeks hurt when you did something awesome? Learned how to ride a bike? Did twenty hula hoop spins? Stayed up all night reading and finished the book by morning?
You're doing important work. Every day.
Because you're worth it.
