This past month I’ve been thinking about all the achievements my kids have had in their short lives. Especially those achievements they have a hard time recognizing as an accomplishment.
Sometimes it’s hard to see that even a little progress is an achievement even if you haven’t reached the final goal.
It’s also not always easy to get excited about the small wins in life. But they are achievements too.
Taking notice of the times you have achieved something big for yourself is also difficult if you’re focused on other people’s progress.
For all of these reasons and more I thought it was time to explore the multitude of achievements in life, big and small. The accomplishments we’ve had and those we’re still hoping to achieve.
This month’s writing prompts are related to achievements.
