Re: What would you say is your biggest achievement

That I've managed to not fall off the deep end, or into a dark hole, or spin out of control, or get lost, or lose my grip. Shouldn't be all that hard but its takes never-ending...attention...to keep myself steady. Wish I had more grace about it but overall, I've maintained balance.

Maybe I was a gymnast in my last life.

Not inflicting my anxieties from my awful upbringing onto my daughter.

Keeping my perspective (my weakness) as nothing in life has any inherent meaning; it only has the meaning you assign to it.

That's nice because there is nothing which matters more than your kids.

Re: What would you say is your biggest achievement

Helping my children become wonderful humans. Like you, Katie- breaking the cycle of poor choices from my parents.
Maintaining art in my life no matter what.

I would put this pretty high on my list as well, though my balance is usually precarious even at the best of times.

Alas, I'm an underachiever.

Re: What would you say is your biggest achievement

The whole of the human race are underachievers, otherwise the world wouldn't have millions of refugees, war torn areas and disparity of wealth. All of these things could be fixed.

Glad for you, honestly--but some folks don't get to be their true self without feeling profound inadequacy.

I can't list a biggest achievement because I don't have any achievements, of any size!

Re: What would you say is your biggest achievement

Well I could say my kids, but really they are my wife's achievement far more than mine, so I won't claim them.

I suppose I would say the creation of our family Christmas Eve tradition which has given us so many great fun memories going right back to when my sons were very small. They say it is their favourite day of the year.
