Celebrate Your Progress

5 April 2021

Why should we celebrate our progress? It’s easy to think of progress as linear, or to focus on our challenges rather than our success. In truth, most of us make advances small and large every single day, but we fail to notice them because we lack ways to appreciate our progress.
