Leave Your Legacy: Amazing You

Time for a new Leave Your Legacy challenge! If you're new to my blog, welcome! You can learn more about my Leave Your Legacy challenge here.

I came across a quote the other day that set me to thinking:
"If we did all the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves."
Thomas Edison
This quote provoked me to wonder about how we, as adults, have become fearful of trying new things or of unleashing our creativity.  Governments have instilled the importance of mathematics and sciences, while our arts programs are being cut or eliminated.  Is it any wonder that so many children are losing their sense of creativity as they grow older?

So, on that note, here's your challenge this week:
Create a layout about an incredible or amazing accomplishment that you have achieved in your life.  Describe how you overcame obstacles or broke through barriers to complete it.  There is no gauge for this - all accomplishments, big and small, qualify.  The only requirement is that it was done, it gave you an incredible feeling of accomplishment and a huge boost of confidence in your abilities.

If you'd like to participate in this year long challenge, please share your layout below, using Linky Tools, by 11:59pm EST on December 31st, 2011. Please see the Leave Your Legacy page for guidelines, before linking here. Winners will be announced on January 1st, 2012.
