Today’s Blogger Challenge Topic is to share the Proudest Moment of Our Lives.
Wow… that’s a big one. I can think of lots of proud moments, but I’m not sure if any of them get the “of my life” status. And, I also want to differentiate between being happy and being proud. I am pulling out the proud moments as things I worked really hard to achieve or watched my kids or husband work hard to achieve. Happy events like getting married, my kids being born, etc are a different emotion.
Very proud moments:
When my kids behave in a way that other adults give compliments – like hearing a story of how they were kind and helpful to other kids or adults.
Finishing my first 5K and my first half-marathon
When I was losing weight, the first time I walked into a store and put on a small-ish size pants and they fit comfortably.
Graduating from college and also when I received my MBA.
Watching my daughter perform a challenging dance and watching my son stand on the podium at his track meet.
Hmm… I’m sure there are more. I’ve been thinking about this one for a few days and am struggling. Is it that I haven’t achieved things? Or is it just that the bar is set high and I have yet to feel ‘accomplished’? Or is it that I’m not stopping to smell the roses and appreciate my accomplishments?
In other news… here’s something to be proud of… MMT and I are trying something new today. Here’s what we’re doing.
