Do You Deserve To Be Awarded?

You know what I suck at?

Actually, I’m pretty sure I have mentioned this previously.

No. You cheeky thing. No it’s not sucking lemons after a shot of tequila.

I’m actually very good at that.

Nope. What I suck at is acknowledging my achievements; both big and little. It’s something I need to work on. Regardless of how hard, how stressful, how anxiety provoking and how much time and effort is required and put into a task, I just can’t seem to say “Hey, nice job!” to myself.

Instead, my brain would rather go to the place of “Yes, well, that’s all well and good, but you still have to do this, that, that other thing, and stuff and things.”

Stupid brain.

Anyhoo, this is why I quite like Awards and thingames like the AusMumpreneur Awards, because they kind of force you to recognise that you’re actually doing something good.

It’s always lovely when someone nominates you, of course, but it’s also a really good idea to nominate yourself; to do something about not only acknowledging that you have done a freaking awesome job with running a business, raising some kids (am guessing your own, but, you know, a couple of randoms may have slipped in there at some point or other) and getting about ‘normal’ day to day Life and all the things that come with Life.


And you bloody well deserve some recognition for it. So shut up and nominate yourself – or have someone nominate you.
