February's Accomplishments

My first summer as an optional level gymnast was hard – I was in junior high, I was new to the team and my coaches yelled at me a lot.  I used to make myself ill just thinking about all of it.  After my mom had had enough of my shenanigans she told me that I could either quit, or I could go the rest of the summer without missing a day.  I opted for the latter and, in order to keep my spirits up, I started keeping a list of three things I felt good about at practice each day.  I found this list a while back when I was cleaning out my room and I was shocked to see how much I had accomplished.  I don’t remember how I felt about it then, but I imagine it must have been what got me through that summer.

I recently quit my job to pursue something new.  Worried about falling into a pit of despair (due to lack of income and perceived lack of productive activity), I decided to start making a list to remind myself of all that I AM doing.  Here are the highlights for February:
