Default What are the proudest accomplishments in your life?

A lot of times, we have trouble taking credit for the good things we've done and achieved in this world. I think most of us are naturally a little modest by nature, and have difficulty accepting that we have indeed accomplished things in our lives.

Whether you're 18 or 38 or 68, we've all done stuff we should be proud of. So this week's question....

What are the proudest accomplishments in your life so far?

What about these one or two things makes you especially proud? Do you feel like you have more in you, maybe even the best is yet to come?? Tell us about your achievements in your life, and stories behind them.

Best,
DocJohn

Facing my fears. Fears are so strong and seem so big. They are like giants when you face them at first. It takess so much courage to face that one fear you've had all your life. Each step that I take towards facing it is one of my proudest accomplishments.

I am 36 years old but look like 25. I have three beautiful children. I had a book published when I was in my early 20's. I was awarded the funniest gall award two years in a row during my high school years, and I've been employee of the month quite a few times...
Now, how is that for modesty? ha ha ha

I suppose it's an accomplishment that I'm still alive, that I've ever at times fought as hard as I have and even given a lot of service to others. And that I've continued to seek out help, especially recently as I've been stepping out and initiating as I've never done before, and now things are starting to make sense, especially realizing there is a cause for all this, and a valid one, too.

I feel somewhat proud over my computer abilities, basically self-taught, especially continuing to build and maintain decent websites from this crappy old Macintosh.

My son, now 17 y.o. but that is the most proudest accomplisment in my life, the kid has a great, mature head on his shoulders and great marks in school
Wish I had been like him in those days, instead I was a big problem child

But yes, my son (only child) is the greatest accomplisment for me. I love that kid

Default Re: What are the proudest accomplishments in your life?

I am proud of myself for graduating 2nd in my hs graduating class, being asked to speak in the ceremony and graduating from college. I missed a lot of school due to 2 heart surgeries and being in a psych hospital, but I still graduated with honors and received 4 awards at my graduation, including a full scholarship to college.
Currently I am most proud of my skills at my job. I am a therapeutic teacher with abused and neglected preschoolers and their parents. It is only after 7 1/2 years at the job that I've come to realize how skilled I am and how it's not a job that everyone could do. It makes me feel really special.

My three 'accomplishments':
1) Bahaved well enough as young child to keep my parents out of legal trouble.

2) Graduated from university when everyone (including high school counsellor) told me I was hopeless (their word).

3) Someone once told me that I'm a 'survivor' of sorts, and the way it was put, it was something positive.

Default Re: What are the proudest accomplishments in your life?

having a child, getting married. that's about it. i used to play bass and write songs/lyrics, but somehow i've just run dry. I think those are my proudest accomplishments, probably the best and only. it seems like everything is downhill from here, but maybe thats just my mood.
