Best accomplishment of 2010?

Hmmm. This is a difficult one. I’m not really sure I accomplished anything by the world’s standard’s in 2010, other than to make my return to writing, falling madly in love, and committing to taking (and posting) at least one picture a day. I also committed to getting healthy in 2010, which I have to say I’ve made great strides in doing (I’ve lost 6 pounds so far!). But I think the biggest accomplishment I’ve made this year is just in general being a better person. I don’t snap nearly as often over “the little things” as I did before, and overall I’m just a less stressful person. I think a lot of that has to do with Joe, but I’d like to think that at least some of it can be attributed to me taking steps to make sure I’m not as stressed out as I used to be. I’ve also learned that there are things outside of my control, and that the only thing I can do is control how I react to those events. These are actually my two favorite quotes (as listed on my FB profile):

“Perseverance is not a passive submission to circumstances-it is a strong and active response to the difficult events of life. It is not passive endurance, but the quality of standing on your feet as you face the storms. It is not simply the attitude of withstanding trials, but the ability to turn them into glory, to overcome them.”

“Sometimes you have to fall from the mountain to realize what you are climbing for. Obstacles are placed in our way to see if what we want is really worth fighting for. From every wound there’s a scar and every scar tells a story. A story that says, I was deeply wounded but I survive.”

Ya know, now that I think about it, I think  this is my greatest accomplishment of 2010:
