I've been reflecting on my life a great deal since last week. I have been reflecting on the good and the bad. Some days when I get down it is so hard to remind myself of all that I have done in my 26 years. I have done much more than some do in a lifetime. I thought for my own sake that it would be a fantastical idea to make a running list of my accomplishments so when I do get down, feel less like myself, or simply need a reminder I can log on here and there they will be for me in plain sight...I won't be able to avoid all that I've accomplished thus far in my life!

1. Moved out on my own when I was 18, and have been on my own since.

2. Held a full time job and a full school load and still managed to pull in a 3.3 GPA.

3. Worked 100 plus hours a week my last semester of school and survived!

4. I have quite a few friendships that I have maintained all of my life.

5. I bought my first car when I was 20...ALL BY MYSELF!

6. I got the first big girl I interviewed for!

7. I moved to the great state of Tennessee all by my lonesome 9 months after graduating college.

8. I got promoted to full time counselor within 6 weeks, and that rarely happens at my company.

9. I got promoted again 8 months later to the job I currently hold.

10. 10 months after moving to Tennessee I bought my first house!

11. I moved to another new city knowing no one and quickly made some great friends!

12. 7 months later I bought my first brand new car...I love my Maggie :)

13. In 5 months I managed to lose 25 lbs

14. I have made quite a name for myself in the area because of my dedication to my job

15. I have a dozen close friends that know just about everything about me, and considering most don't even have 5 close friends I consider this A BIG DEAL!

16. I completed 18 hours of Grad School while working full time and have a 3.85 GPA to show for it!

17. I am continually trying to improve my life and the life of those around me...I may not save the world, but I'll give 'er hell trying!
