I love this post, because I definitely agree with you when you say it is a lot easier for us to think about all the things we have done wrong rather than feel proud for the things we have been doing well in. With that being said, I must say that this week I am proud of myself for simply showing up. I am sick and have felt terrible this week, and despite that I have showed up to work every day, helped organize and run the scavenger hunt and relay race yesterday at the YAS Funfest where over 300 young adults were in attendance. I could have called out, I could have stayed home and tried to get better, but I am proud of myself for sticking to my responsibilities and understanding that my team needed me. It has been a very productive week and I am proud that I have made it through.
