Against the odds
Expectation vs Reality
Do we set the bar too high?
I think it’s adamant that in today’s world we’re taking on more and more, trying to juggle more than we’ve ever had to, with less time, less money but seemingly more resources than before. Amid life’s chaos, we’re trying to achieve the impossible, and we’re being fooled by the internet into believing it’s doable. All while looking totally flawless, might I add. We’ve learnt to set expectations for success, and to then measure our success by what the internet thinks. We’ve allowed social media to capitalise on our self-worth, to pay us emotionally in ‘likes’, and to strive for followers. Have we taken the time to explain to our children, that this isn’t what success looks like? Success is not measured by how many people retweet your tweet, how many people share your story, how many leave a comment on your post. The lesson to learn here is that success is for yourself, not for others.
It’s the little things
Stuck for celebration inspiration?
3. Find a personalised gift with the date they succeeded; little reminders can go a long way when you’re facing new challenges. Looking back on past successes can be a big boost.
4. Take photos and frame them, give them as a gift so they’ll remember to be proud.
5. Take time out to stop, slow down, and enjoy their moment of success. Taking time to celebrate with loved ones creates memories that will last forever.
