In this moment, take the time to see just how far you’ve come. Forget about things you “should be” doing. Just look at what you have done. Don’t minimize the accomplishments. Enjoy the merit award for improved spelling you got in third grade. Smile over your first place finish on Track and Field Day. Acknowledge the accomplishment represented by a high school diploma or college degree.

Don’t live in the past, but honor the steps you took in the past to get to your present.
