[30 Day Challenge] 30 Accomplishments

Random Observation/Comment #462: Be proud when you complete any project that takes more than 6 months of planning. That’s a substantial amount of time! It’s basically 2 semesters worth of normal college classes where you learn a quarter of all the education you’ll need to start working full time.


Why This List?

I think we often take for granted our completed work. You, as a person right now, is an accumulation of experience and accomplishments. Be proud of that and think of how you’ve made your mark in your own character and the lives of others.  This reflection is meant to be healthy and inspire you to believe in your continuous abilities to reach a higher plane.
