LBI14DWPAP Day 13: Give Yourself A Pat On The Back

On the penultimate day of Live Better In 14 Days With Pen And Paper we’re going to take a moment to give ourselves a pat on the pack and make a list of things we’ve accomplished in the last year that we’re proud of.

If they involve curing a major disease so much the better, but “Finally emptied the last box from our last move” works just fine.

The point here is to understand that you do make progress. You do accomplish things.

We often forget what we do, its value, and that we matter to people. If we look backward and see what we’ve done, we feel better. It blunts the sting of some of the things we didn’t get done.

Pro tip:

Ask your spouse, family, and friends. Asking your kids yields interesting results, and a much different perspective.
