We celebrate our triumphs and successes by building ornate monuments, commissioning beautiful portraits, and taking timeless photographs. It is important to us that we remember these milestones. Those around us often use these trophies to put merit to our accomplishments. As others may only remember the ceremony and tend to focus solely on the spoils, let us remember the trials and tribulations faced along the way and appreciate our true crowning achievements. It was these events that proved our strength, molded our willpower, and solidified our determination to achieve excellence.
In these moments we recognized our own greatness.
