I successfully completed my K-12 public education. Granted, I graduated oh, 15 years ago, but I still consider it quite an accomplishment!
I successfully earned my bachelor's degree in elementary education. That only took six years. But it was worth it! I can honestly say I am working in the job of my dreams. I LOVE what I do. I LOVE being a teacher.

Not my accomplishment, but whoever created this - WOW!
Let's see... what else have I accomplished. This blog is an accomplishment. I've wanted to start one for a while, but always managed to find a reason not to. Not this time!
Accomplishments... upon making the decision to move out on my own, I have been able to fully support myself. I've been able to pay my bills, keep food in the fridge, keep the heat running in the winter and the air running in the summer... I've even been able to do a little traveling! For someone who is afraid of the unknown, flying across the country the first time was pretty scary, but I did it! And have done it several times since that first anxiety-filled flight. That's an accomplishment!
Accomplishments... ok, this might sound a little odd, but sometimes, just getting out of bed is an accomplishment in itself... or getting dressed... even eating three decent meals. All accomplishments, depending on where I am in life at that moment.

Life in itself is an accomplishment. Every day I continue to breathe, to think, to live... all accomplishments... and living each day? I can't wait to see what else I accomplish in life!
