I’m proud of myself because……

Sometimes we have to really take stock of what we accomplish. So often, I think we all are weighed done by all we don’t manage to do.

Instead,  we should focus on what we did well. 

For example…. 


I’m super proud of myself for not stress eating last night.  I was plenty stressed out but I didn’t eat.  I opted instead to have a cup of hot tea.

That wasn’t easy for me to do, but I did it. 

I thought it would be nice to share what we are proud of ourselves for. I really think it’s important to keep perspective.

I am proud of myself for remaining mostly positive over the last 23 years of raising a special needs child. I am proud of myself for not giving up, even on the toughest days. I am proud of myself for remaining calm and patient during another tough week. I am proud of raising an amazing son. 🙂


I am proud of me because:  I didn't scream at  my daughter when the teapot she prepared shot scalding tea over my left hand and torso.  That is NOT to say I didn't scream–because I certainly did–but just not at her.  I'm still suffering a 2nd degree burn on my hand but the burning sensation is greatly reduced after 3 days and lots of silver ointment.  >~<


im proud of myself because for almost 3 years now i have been fighting for the best possible school placement for my son and it may happen this week! (fingers crossed!:)


 @KarimanElgoharyShama Good luck!  I know the waiting is so frustrating.  We just got appropriate placement for our son after a 2 year fight.  Now we are just hoping that he is able to handle it, and it is so far so good after the first week.  My fingers are crossed for you.


…I was finally being able to admit that I need help in managing my own anxiety, and i'm not super-woman no matter how much i try to be.
…I've come a long way in learning more about what puts my body or mind into overload and learning that it's okay to admit defeat and walk away once in a while.
and I'm proud of myself for having found a way to reach out and help others in sharing my stories, feelings and suggestions day to day, and having changed many people's lives for the better already.
