I grew up with a lot of encouraging from both my parents, but they also held me to a very high standard. Big victories were celebrated, with a lot more focus on academic things than anything else, and this is the thing I normally revert to if I don't pay close attention to my mental health. But academic or economic success isn't everything, especially if you have a shaky mental health situation, and celebrating small victories sometimes can be life saving, at least in the long run. So, with this in mind, I thought it would be cool to start a thread where we can share our big or small victories of any kind, with the idea of having a reminder to do it whenever we can, celebrating each other's advances, and also a place where we can come back on a rainy day and remember that one day months ago where you were proud of an accomplishment. Don't be shy, it's really important to be able to give yourself credit where it's due. I'll get the ball rolling with a couple of things I could think of today. The first one is that somehow I am passing two of my classes with over 100%, and considering I normally do worse on second semesters I'm actually very proud of this. The second one is that yesterday I managed to call both of my parents, which has been a big challenge since I moved away because it reminds me that I'm not there. It's good for me though, because I miss them and the more time I go without calling them makes me feel awfully guilty and increasingly alone, so I'm very happy that I pushed myself to do it. Now it's your turn!

I'm sure this is a question you were asked over and over again in grade-school, and once you were old enough to apply to colleges, and maybe even by your parents and bosses at some point. This topic came to mind when I happened to listen to this song and then wanted to go watch the whole animation again. If you haven't had the pleasure of watching the movie UP, I would like to request that you watch the video below all the way through. If you have seen it before, I would still recommend that you watch it again so that I do not feel alone in my existential sadness. This is one of the finest moments of animation I've ever seen, and the gorgeous music guides the scenes naturally and it's just touching. I feel like this narrative is a perfect example of one way to live a truly fulfilling life full of love and happiness. My personal goals in life include the following: To find a home in a great location for my husband and I to live the rest of our days in To adopt rescued animals and give them a loving home To create moving artwork that conveys my emotions to others To help operate a bakery as a cake decorator To finally go to college someday for something that I really enjoy To be able to finally feel free of my depression and just be happy with who I am I'd like to ask all of you to slow down and think on what you really want to in your life, and what your truest hopes, goals, and dreams are. Goals can be a great source of motivation for anyone and it's important that you don't lose sight of what you really want during the day-to-day grind of existing. Lets all motivate each other to center ourselves mentally and maybe work a little harder towards anything and everything that will make us reach our goals.
