Doing a little spring cleaning of the home office I decided to take a picture of the stack of papers above, before I shredded them. Said stack of papers is a draft of a novel I wrote and I’m not shredding them for any angst-y dramatic book will never be published reason (in fact I rather hope it will), I am simply not a clutter-y person and it’s been there long enough. But I took a picture, because it is impressive. It is 350+ pages of my words, my thoughts and my creations. I look at it and I feel really great about what I accomplished.
This made me think about other things that make me feel good about myself. Big, small, in-between, and pictured above from left to right:
1. Planning a fun trip to New York with friends to celebrate my husband’s birthday
2. The above mentioned novel
3. Keeping the plants on my patio alive
4. A happy marriage
5. Finishing my Master’s Degree (finally)
These are the things that make me sit up a little taller and smile a little wider today. So what are your things? Seriously, what are you particularly proud of these days? Share your success in the comments below:
