sense of an accomplished day.

“When you do nothing, you feel overwhelmed and powerless. But when you get involved, you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better.”

"There are many ways to move forward, but only one way of standing still."

Franklin D. Roosevelt

One of my biggest fears is missing opportunities by over analyzing the situation. Diving into uncharted waters can be frightening, but how much worse can living with regrets be? Living life to the fullest takes courage. I hope I can earn my "Red Badge" some day...one step at a time. I am still at it!

I think you just described my weekends... the more I do nothing on a weekend, the less relaxing it is. The more I fill it for other's sake, the better it is.

So, yesterday I stayed at work for 12 hours... I could have gone home earlier, but I stayed to help a coworker with his project...my boss decided to email this morning and tell me that since he didn't understand how I did the work he decided that I should redo it his way... Sometimes getting more involved makes you feel a lot LESS accomplished...

You caught me on a not so positive day... maybe I'll come back and read this quote on a day that all of my efforts have actually accomplished something.

By the way, best of luck with Felt. :-)

i couldn't agree more, and whats funny is that me and my dad were talking about this today and how your body even reacts better and you are more healthy when you are out and doing things

i'm very much experiencing that right now.

i like being able to throw myself into something, or someone(s), and seeing the results of my effort. it give s a sense of purpose, perhaps.
