The start of a new year always makes us think about our accomplishments and regrets. I asked a few older (above 60) acquaintances, about what they thought their biggest accomplishment was, the answer made me smile. Most of them said it was the relationships they had created or the way they had raised their children or the fact that they helped some needy people during the holiday time. I was a bit shocked, and I will tell you why.
Being a woman in my 40s who has just finally stated to live my life on my own terms, I looked at accomplishments differently. When I think of my accomplishments I think more in terms of publishing a book or finishing a asters degree with older children, travelling the world or following my heart.
