We have arrived at Day Eleven of the 31 Day Blog Challenge and it is definitely getting more challenging. The topic today is my proudest moment. This one is tripping me up. Much like when I had to share the personality traits I’m most proud of, it’s not something I really think about. I feel like I haven’t really had a moment I would consider a “proudest moment.” Maybe I’m thinking of it too literally?
Going the more sentimental route, I guess the accomplishment of getting through my painful pregnancy and difficult birth with Xander was a pretty big accomplishment. The weeks that followed with him in the NICU were no picnic either, so that was an extra accomplishment. It was rough on so many levels, but I (and my husband) came out stronger for it.
A less sentimental and more practical-sounding proud moment is when I was made the manager at my first job. I had only been there a short time and I was given the position over people who had been there for many years. I’m sure my coworkers were not as happy as I was, but it proved to me that hard work can pay off.
What is your proudest moment?
