An ode to small wins

Sometimes days are long and life is lonely. It can really get you down if you let it. And I for sure let it get me more often than I’d like to admit. Life starts pelting lemons and sometimes I’m just not in the mood to make some lemonade. But then something magical happens. Like a small peek of sunshine from behind the stormy clouds. A little pick me up when I feel like giving up. A small win.

I’d like to take a moment and celebrate some small wins that have gotten me through tough days.


I only snoozed once this morning. Win.

The first outfit I tried on was a keeper! Win!

Short line at the Starbucks drive thru. Win.

Fixer Upper marathon on TV. YAS win.

A stranger said she liked my shoes. Win.

Crossed something off the to do list. Win!

Did the laundry, folded it and put it away… all in one day! WIN!

Two green lights in a row! WOO. Win.

Found a place to park. Win.

They didn’t charge me for extra cheese! Win!


Every day brings different challenges. Some days I don’t need the small wins to smile. Other days just getting out of bed is a win and it’s those days that I have to remind myself of the importance of a small win. I’m still learning to be okay with bad days.
