What is the one thing your are most proud of accomplishing in your life?

I used to work for a non-profit that granted end of life wishes to adults facing terminal illness. As part of that job, I got to grant someone's dying wish. She died about a week after I granted it, but her last few days were full of happiness and smiles.

That's mine. What's yours?

Working with 12 rural school districts to improve teaching, learning, and leadership through staff development and technical support. Student achievement rates in those districts gained considerably during that time. Also I started a training and support program for beginning teachers, and feedback from beginners in the program then and comments 20 years later said that the program made a huge difference for them.

Surviving This life (no family, no siblings, nobody to trust) without going down the sh!thole? I was alone after turning 14 but somehow was able to hang on to photography around 19-20 and I never let go. I never had anything served to me on a golden plate unlike some people I know and often I had people try to jeopardize my business/life instead, but 11 years later here I am smile001.gif I’ve been able to stay away from everything/anything that could shift and change my life too. Most people are scared to leave their town, and I reset my life more than once in different cities/countries and succeed each time when I had no network or nothing. So I guess this is an accomplishment? smile001.gif oh yeah, and despite the bs I’ve been put through, people still describe me as a very loving caring person. So I guess that’s a good thing. I’m waiting for the day this will shift and I turn into that old cranky lady who’ll cut open a basketball that accidentally got in her yard smile007.gif

@Exterminis eh I try smile001.gif

Turning around depression and social anxiety. Without doing that, nothing else would have mattered.

I once drove across country and blogged about the good that small, rural public libraries, museums, and parks do for their communities, usually on shoestring budgets and without the support of their local governments.

@Exterminis Thank you! It was one of the best experiences of my life. I wish I could have kept it up.

Clicking that doctrine rules our lives and distancing myself from it's influence as much as I can.
Nationalism, religion, politics, family expectations, the rat race in general.....all forms of doctrine that dominate many lives but are totally nonessential to life itself. Remove from your life these "rules", group or herd mentality, and life becomes much simpler and enjoyable

That would be an amazing position to be in! The most important thing that I am most proud of is, evolving out of a family of severe mental illness! Which took years! Feeling like a whole person, gave me freedom of spirit for my end days!

I'm still here and l haven't been to prison. If you knew my life, you would be impressed too. ?

@Exterminis Unless you like uniforms and bad food. I did that in the Army.

Made it to be alive at age 20. Going to college and so far I have all A's. Honestly, I don't know where I am going in life. Never thought I would be alive at 18, now I'm 20.

I have four children. Three of them are wonderful people.

Accepting myself for who I am, and saying fuck you to the social norm.

Getting a Masters in Social Work and passing the clinical licensing exam so I can work in hospice and home health. I am grateful everyday that I get to do what I love.

@Exterminis You could volunteer for any hospice if you'd like, or if you have the time is probably more accurate. Volunteers are a hospice Medicare requirement, so chances are your local hospice may have an opening.

That I graduated university with honours (statistically and with my home envt being the way it was I should have never gone to uni, let alone completed it). Also helping homeless people in my city and getting involved in organizations or projects geared towards helping homeless or disadvantaged people while in university. It's not much, but I am still young, perhaps I can accomplish something more impressive one day like you! smile001.gif

I don’t know if I could say I was particularly proud of anything, except knowing that I raised two sons to adulthood successfully. They are kind and caring human beings, so I performed my duty as a mother well. What I do feel is fortunate. I am fortunate to have been born at the time I was. We who were born just after WW2 are the lucky generation, the baby-boomers. I had the additional good fortune to be born to enlightened parents in one if the most beautuful cities in the world. You could say I take pride in knowing I have inherited the views handed down from the great thinkers of the Scottish Enlightenment.

Hm I'm not really proud of anything I've done. I've accomplished quite a bit, but I'm not really proud of it. Most was expected of me, or something that was easy for me, or i was proud but now leaves a bitter sweet feeling instead, or I was proud but other people weren't seeing my pride and made me feel inadequate.

I have a very toxic life around me, now that I think of it. Anything I accomplished that made me happy was treated like I should have been better

Oh don't frowny face. It's just life. Someday I'll be proud of something
