Quote of the Week


Nothing builds self-esteem and self-confidence like accomplishment. - Thomas Carlyle

Accomplishment is like a shot in the arm, a boost of courage.  You immediately feel better about yourself, and when you feel better about yourself you can accomplish more. It is a continuous circle. The more you do, the more you can do.

Written for the 30-day creative writing challenge hosted by Nicky and Mike of We Work For Cheese.  Today's prompt is A Sense of Accomplishment.  This is the 11th day of this challenge.  Check out the Linky at WWFC to read the accomplishments of the other participants.


  1. Oh that is so true! Every accomplishment brings about another challenge and need to accomplish again :)

  2. That just about sums it up! Great post!

  3. And like a shot in the arm, going actually doing the work may sting a little but the sting was worth it in the end. Unless the shot in the arm is for the chicken pox vaccine and then realizing that you were exposed to chicken pox just prior to getting the vaccine as what happened with my daughter. Then a shot in the arm just blows.

  4. Strong words. And well said!

  5. So very true indeed! In fact, I'm feeling a little blue these days because I haven't been accomplishing very much.

  6. That's a fantastic quote, and I love your interpretation of it. 150 points to you - because I want to add to your sense of accomplishment! :-)

  7. SO TRUE. And I applaud you for doing the quote as part of the challenge. A+!
