Accept It For What It Is

Welcome to day 11 of 30 Days of Writing, a creative writing challenge blah blah blah.   Today’s prompt is “A Sense of Accomplishment”. Enjoy, and blah blah blah link up at the end of this post if you’ve participated in today’s challenge blah blah blah.

Accept It For What It Is

My sense of accomplishment has been off the charts this past month. I’ve completed some huge projects at work, watched my son Kane receive awards in science, history and music and finally made a serious dent in my spring cleaning. Not to mention hosting this blog challenge, meeting some great new bloggers and writing everyday for the past 11 days. I feel satisfied, motivated, and happy.

And freakin’ tired!

This morning, I feel a sense of accomplishment just for having gotten out of bed. Sometimes, you need to feel good about the little things.

I am so not this cute when I'm sleeping.

So today, I give you some other people’s thoughts and feelings on accomplishments since mine are a little less than coherent.

All money means to me is a pride in accomplishment.
Ray Kroc

Accomplishment is socially judged by ill defined criteria so that one has to rely on others to find out how one is doing.
Albert Bandura

Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.
Thomas Edison

It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.
Leonardo da Vinci

The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in rising again after you fall.
Vince Lombardi

and finally…


To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
