Default What is something you've done that you're proud of?

So this last year or so has been pretty tough for me, with coming out to my family (literally everyone knows now tho, thank god), drama with girls, personal issues and finally, moving to a new country... But with all this stress I try to stay positive and think about the things that I'm proud of and make me happy.

One thing I'm super proud of is this LGBT group I made on FB that now has over 150+ members and we organise meet ups and stuff!!! Its really good because I've seen people who are very lonely and isolated feel like they can be themselves and not have to hide which is a very, very amazing thing to see.

The best thing about the group (for me) is people asking me for advice and being able to get help, where as before I started the group, they had no where to get 'help' from. So yeah, it really does make me happy.

When I came out to everyone this year, I put it as a status on FB and I got so much support and love it was unreal. I had all kinds of people messaging me saying how brave I was (which i dont think was true, I thought (and still do) that just saying it over the internet was a lot easier and less difficult than face to face) and I had people who I havent talked to for years asking me for advice and what to do...

So yeah I made this thread because I've been stressed out recently and I think it helps to think about the positive things in life and I hope other members can do so too.

Losing weight was a big thing for me (excuse the pun) and I'm always quite proud it's never gone back on and I feel like a normal girl not a blob

Not giving up at the first opportunity. It really paid off in the end.

Congrats on coming out and your FB group

My thing would be seeing my auntie recover from an illness (well she's still recovering... she was diagnosed with anorexia basically so she'll always have it... but she was extremely ill at the time she was diagnosed, and she's doing much better now she's getting help etc)... I know it's not something I've done lol, but it's something that happened recently so it's still on my mind and it affected me quite badly, I've always been really close to her, so it makes me happy and proud when I think she's finally getting help, and physically being better than she's been in years, and knowing I can be there for her properly now it's out in the open.

I dont know.. I really had a tough time last year and i had a HUGE exam coming up and lots people didnt like me in the class but i really didnt care and did my BEST and made new friendships that actually mattered to me.

I am still struggling on some issues that lots of forum members also feel but i am trying my best to move forward and be the person i want to be

just over three weeks ago my mother had a stroke. I turned away from her and when I turned back, the side of her face had fallen. The thing that flashed into my mind was the advert F.A.S.T. - Face, Arms, Speech, Time to call 999. From her having the stroke to her being on the way to the hospital was less than 30 minutes and a stroke nurse was waiting for her. Had I not happened to have been there right at that moment she would have suffered physically and mentally more than she did, and could have died. As it it, it was caught so early that last Saturday, she went into rehab to get her moving so she came come home... maybe as soon as a fortnight.

I'm proud that I was there and could help, although I'm posting this really to make you all watch this:

Exactly that! She couldn't speak or stand or raise her right arm... and today you'd never think anything was wrong. Amazing recovery... so lucky I happened to be there. My Dad had already gone to bed. Actually I'm more grateful than proud.

Right place, right time she is a lucky woman, my aunt had a similar experience about six months ago her daughter was with her, you would never think she had a stroke she is fully recovered

I literally saved a kitten from being munched on by a dog when i was a teenager, he was standing on a wall and I saw the dog just about to lunge at the kitten and I grabbed it just in time, got scratched to bits in the process

So I have a lot of things in life I am proud of... but the most recent one for me... in which I just hit a major milestone goal in this week... is working for the last year and a half on a number of fitness and health goals ... that only have to do with me taking care of me (something a mother forgets to do over time)... and being able to check off all those goals over that time and finally coming to the point where I feel all my hard work paid off.
I have been able to work through a knee/ ankle injury that stopped me from running a few years ago, a thyroid disorder that was brought on post second baby... and a period of mental and adrenal stress... all through fitness and nutrition... and now I am medication free on all accounts, pain free, full of mounds of energy everyday, hit my lowest weight, my fittest form, and am matching what I used to run over 10 years ago this week by completing 9.5 km twice in succession now. That was my goal for the end of summer and i am there already!!!

So now I am considering turning the 10km run I wanted to do this fall into a half marathon... something I have never done before but has always been on my bucket list. But also I wonder if I push to far... will I just re-injure myself

oh, and yesterday I got a "how you doing" from a group of workers while volunteering helping set up at a local outdoor festival... I mean... they were apparently from the low security penitentiary ... but beggars can't be choosers

Aw Niamh,lol,cats are lethal when they scratch and stuff,they don't realise you are doing it for their own good. Good for you though many people wouldn't have bothered.
