What are you most proud of? What is your greatest life accomplishment thus far?

Mine is living on my own for 3 years!!! No one in my family thought I could do it, move to Cincinnati and be financially independant. They all expected me to move back home after 3 months of living here. I had to be humbled and knocked out of my sheltered bubble to survive though. I worked an underpaid, over qualified job, dealt with racism and lived off canned noodles for a while but I have come a long way and have earned the respect of my family and friends and a whole new appreciation and love of myself

Hmmm...Here are mine:

1. Working full-time to pay my way through college and managing to graduate in four years. I don't recommend it.
2. Building a business from scratch to $5 million in annual billings in five years, while dealing with the death of my business partner.
3. Publishing two novels.
4. Having a loving marriage that's produced three beautiful, intelligent, and creative children.
5. Giving back to society through my contribution of time and money to the homeless, animals, and inner city education.
6. Being considered a welcome asset at dinner parties.
7. Earning my bareboat certification in sailing.
8. Learning to scuba dive.
9. Bungee jumping off a bridge in New Zealand.
10. Learning two foreign languages, German and Russian. Don't ask me to speak them now beyond basic tourist talk. I'm rusty beyond belief. But I used to read Pushkin and Dostoevsky in the original tongue.

Why thanks. I'm hoping that, in eight years, Mrs. CPG35223 and I cast off from the dock and sail around the world.

I forgot #11. Being quoted a dozen different times in the Wall Street Journal. The first time it happen, it impressed the crap out of my father-in-law. He was just reading the paper that morning and saw me in there.
