The Ten Best Moments of My Life


I read a post from another blogger about sharing the Ten Best Moments of my Life. I thought that was a good idea. So I'm going to post mine here are sort of in order of time but not priority.
  1. Graduating from college with high honors--it was a real "whew" moment
  2. Getting my Ph.D. --it made me have a great sense of accomplishment
  3. Getting my first job as a scientist--finally getting paid to do something I love
  4. Getting my first paper published--without revision. I was published as a scientist!
  5. Getting married--intending to spend my life with someone I deeply love
  6. Getting my first car--an old Mustang that I liked and was my very own
  7. Building our house--and acting as the general contractor
  8. Getting the top prize with one of my hobbies
  9. That Ah-Ha moment in recovery when I understood that I could Let Go
  10. A first kiss from a special person--another Ah-Ha moment
What are the ten best moments in your life?

  1. For me, receiving love and kindness from people i hold in very high esteem is the most wonderful gift i have been given so far. very humbling and filled with grace. life transforming if i am honest about it.
    My 10 would consist of those acts of generosity and kindness :) They have kept me alive and renewed my faith in humanity, so are priceless.

  2. It's so interesting that most of your top ten are the achievements of goals you set out to accomplish. That makes the moment when you realized that you had to 'let go' all the more amazing. When you're very goal oriented and you square off with addiction, letting go is not that easy. Great post.

  8. Syd, I sure appreciate your post, and already am thinking of mt "ten". A couple which came to mind surprised me, because they were events over which I even shed tears. Only to find God in there doing HIS miracle cleansing work.

    And I LOVE Madison's take, she really cut to the REAL stuff.

    And yes, where is BLOGGING in all that--maybe #11--you did say chronological rather than order of importance? --grin!

    Love and Peace!

  9. one of my favorite moments that i truly love, is the moment of silence at the end of a meeting when addicts pray for those needing recovery.

  14. What a depressing question - can't think of 10, but at the top of the list, the best moments involved getting my first dog. And my second. I have a bit of work to do, I see. Thanks, as always, Syd.
