When we look at resumes or job applications or awards at work or school it's all about our accomplishments. How many things we've achieved. While there's obviously a purpose for that type of measurement of success, it's not the only thing that matters. Society might not appear to value it as much, but the type of person you are and how you treat others is invaluable. In a world so driven by stuff sometimes it's easy to forget that.
This isn't the post I intended to write when I started typing and I realize this might sound kind of random and off topic. I guess this is really just a reminder for myself (and maybe you) to not always think of accomplishments as things that are easily measured or can be bulleted out on a list. Always celebrate the big things, but if this past year didn't go according to plan, remember to reflect on the little things as well :)
