October Blog a Day Challenge – 11
Most Proud Moment
I cannot just share one proud moment, I have lived an amazing life to date, and the experiences I have been lucky enough to live could fill a couple of books. These proud moments did not come from sport or my youth, nor did it come from any job I had; my most proud moments have come from life itself.
My top five most proud moments:
- Fighting back against my depression. The place I was and the place I am today is two completely different worlds. Being able to understand why I was acting the way I was and being able to fight back the demons is a very proud moment of mine.
- Graduation. Going back to school at the age of 39 and graduating with my degree finally at the age of 42 was such an achievement. Check another off the bucket list.
- Standing up for my sister at her wedding. For obvious reasons, but mostly seeing her happiness and allowing me to be a part of her special day. She is my little sister, but I look up to her more than most people.
Tied for the top spot was the birth of my two beautiful daughters. These monkeys are my pride and joy and my motivation. They give me so much joy, and the simplest thing like a text of a phone call fills me with so much happiness. The adversity they have been through, and the positive outlook they both have on life is so motivating.
