Accomplishments: How do they make you feel?

4 Comments

I’m not talking about just writing. This blog focuses on a general topic that everyone knows and can take part in the discussion.

Me

I may not look very impressed, but this was the night of my High School graduation and I'll remember it.

Accomplishments.

What kind are there?

Maybe you finished that book you’ve worked hard on for years, or got that degree you’ve spent so much time studying for? Perhaps you did something simple; put that school work behind you for good, got over things and did more than you expected you could?

Accomplishments come in various shapes and sizes. Not only huge things to make you feel good about yourself. Every little thing counts. You got your groceries for the week done – why not count that as an accomplishment?

Every now and then, take a step back and look at the things you’ve done. Did you carry out goals you set, even if they were subconscious ones? If you did, give yourself a pat on the back. You deserve it.

Does it matter what others think? Be proud of what you choose to do. Be proud of who you are.

Reaching out and finishing things you’ve wanted to get done is wonderful. Keep up what you do and really see everything you do in your day-to-day life. Even the little things. Especially the little things.

Because, really. The smallest things add up to a humongous whole.

What do you do when you reach goals you set? How does it make it feel? Let me know!

I'm a writer, a reader, a gamer and a dreamer. I love losing myself to thought and considering possibilities. That is how I create my stories and weave the erratic tales into readable ones.

  1. I find it completely amusing how your email popped into my inbox as I was reading the closing speech at a conference for an organization to which I was the President. Accomplishments are worth it all, the hard work can be frustrating but accomplishments make you realize your potential and how much you can grow over the years. Take a look at what I was reading and you’ll understand what I mean: http://abitofeverythingnow.wordpress.com/2011/03/25/goodbyes-arent-about-you/

  2. I definitely think the little accomplishments lead up to bigger ones. For example, I actually cleaned the kitchen on my own. To some that would be pathetic, seeing as I’m married and nearly 21, but to me, it meant I overcame a lot of insecurity and selfishness. That was a big deal. If you see life in the positive light (small accomplishments that slowly build up to something good) verses the negative (you should’ve already finished all these things so you’re constantly behind), the world just seems better. If that makes sense.

    • Yeah, exactly. Little ones help you gain more confidence and that helps you build up to larger accomplishments that will truly show.
      That’s exactly why accomplishments should be for you and you alone; others may not understand, but it’s important to you and that’s what matters; not what others thinks of it.

Let me know what you think!
