In 2020 Iā€™m answering a list of 52 journal questions. Read about it here.

Something you are proud of?
Of course I am super proud of my family, for so many reasons. I am proud of many things I have done. But I thought for this post I would talk about the thing I need to remind myself I should be proud of… my writing.

Sometimes it is really hard to remember what I have achieved when the ladder to publication stretches so far ahead of me.

I need to remember I have studied, practiced and learnt my craft.

I need to remember I have finaled in and won writing contests.

I need to remember I have successfully taught writing craft workshops.

I need to remember I have written four complete books.

I am proud of my writing. One day I will be proud of the book on the shelf.

    I am proud of you too!! You are a wife and mother and author and lovely friend šŸ’›šŸ’›

    I’m proud of not giving up when I was sucking at university, how Ive grown as a person in my life. Of how I’m expanding my gifts and talents each day.

    • Aw, thanks, GF. Right back at you. xx

      You should also be proud of the wonderful job you are doing at work (evidenced by your last post).

    Aww thanks lovely!

  3. Such a good reminder. It’s true, isn’t it. We all should be proud of something we’ve put hours and weeks into. Good reminder!

    • I think it’s so easy to think everyone else’s achievements are worth celebrating, but never our own.

  4. Get rid of the “I need to remember” in front of each of those statements, and own them.
