How do you celebrate achievements in your life? With something that will remind you daily of the hard work that went into that achievement? Well, you should if you don’t.
CROSS Pen Engraving
CROSS Pen asked me to celebrate an achievement in my life by putting a few words engraved on a CROSS pen. I chose to put, “Life is a Journey!” on my pen. I thought about all the different achievements in my life and whether there was one that was pivotal. One achievement that changed my life forever. And….there isn’t one. Every single one of those achievements and special moments has brought me to where I am.
Here are some examples:
- Graduating college
- Getting married
- Having a baby
- Starting a blog
- Running a half marathon
- Speaking in front of a large audience
Those are all achievements in my life that I want to remember. But what they remind me is that each special moment is a step along my journey. It’s not something to attain and then be done. I didn’t graduate from college and then be done. That was a turning point and my step into true adulthood.
Celebrate My Continuing Achievements
What I wanted to celebrate was my yearning to never stop achieving. To continue to learn and do and with each achievement, to find something new to learn and do. Always challenge myself with the next thing. Enjoy the journey to each achievement and stop waiting for the achievement to change my life.
Thank you CROSS Pen for this daily reminder to be present and enjoy. Each day when I work on my to do list with my CROSS Pen, I’ll be reminded to enjoy the journey of my life.
Give The Gift of a Story
Give the gift of someone’s story with a CROSS Pen. It can be one word or a small phrase to remind them of a special moment or an achievement. It’s a gift that is very personal and will mean a lot to someone.
