“Track your small wins to motivate big accomplishments.” —Teresa Amabile


To celebrate something means you honor and recognize achievements or “wins” you have experienced in your life. 

In marriage, it’s important to celebrate the wins you experience together. Sadly, we live in a world where there is so much negativity that we need to be deliberate about celebrating the wins in our lives. 

Sure, these celebrations can include things like anniversaries and birthdays. And yet there can also be cause for celebration when you’ve been working through tough conversations and situations. 

You can even celebrate great sex, the completion of household projects, or even working your way through a tough week. What’s important is you celebrate achievements.

It’s not only about the BIG wins. It’s vital to celebrate the small ones too.

Why should you celebrate? 

Celebrations lift your spirits and elevate your mood. Even the idea of a celebration can put a smile on your face. That’s because it often comes with a shift in your perspective that’s focused on success and not negativity.  

Doing this purposefully in your marriage is the difference between the ordinary and the extraordinary. It shows the intention to move forward or through things that pop up in your life. 

It’s important that you don’t give in to “roadblocks” that pop up. These will only impede your opportunity to celebrate. Some of these can include time, money, and kids.

When you celebrate your wins, you’re being intentional about how awesome you two are doing in your marriage.

A wins you can celebrate is doing a Coffee Break for 4 weeks in a row. Another win could be setting up your Intimacy Lifestyle and then seeing it through for 30 days. 

Whatever you choose to celebrate, it’s so worth it!
