I love this word- “accomplishment” and thinking about the feeling it evokes. I especially love that different people set different standards for accomplishment, because, DUH, everybody’s different. But you know that feeling I’m talking about? At the end of the day, you did your absolute best and your worn down so perfectly that you know you will sleep well that night. It’s earning that ice cream cone after a 5 mile run and it tasting so much sweeter because you set that treat for your hard work and sweat. Looking at your kids, who aren’t serial killers, and knowing you did a good job and all those sleepless nights at the beginning were worth it.

My honest and truthful things that make me feel accomplished:

  • Sore muscles. A good workout, a hard hike, a successful rock climbing mission. Love those worked muscles!
  • House chores. I don’t like doing them, but I love it after I put energy into my house and living space and everything is clean in my sanctuary.
  • $100 paid work. Being an entrepreneur is HARD, but if I was able to get $100 worth of client work done, I feel GOOD!
  • Nourishment. If I had a full day of healthy eating and hydration choices, I feel wonderful.
  • Added to my knowledge library. I love learning new things, and it can make my day when I learned something new.

With that in mind, I should probably hit those marks every day! What makes you feel accomplished, every part of you?

Why are my posts not all about development and WordPress and marketing?

I am, like you, your partner, your gardener, a dynamic individual with a million stories and thoughts in my past and my future. I wanted a blog to show some of my personality and struggles and movement, to be the dynamic part of this otherwise static portfolio. And hopefully inspire, comfort, or help someone. These posts are not riddled with keyword-rich phrases because I do enough of that for clients. I am a different kind of developer, with communication and people skills and a desire to use my skills for good. Let’s build a culture together, I can’t wait!
