“It’s when ordinary people rise above the expectations and seize the opportunity that milestones truly are reached.” – Mike Huckabee
Milestones are those markers in the road telling us how far we’ve come and how much we’ve managed to achieve; but given my own physical and emotional disabilities, I would always struggle to reach my own milestones. But for me, milestones shouldn’t be about whether we reach them early or even on time.
They should be about the little things we accomplish that either we were never expected to accomplish, or even thought we would. They are the little things we take for granted that we don’t see as milestones, the little things that make a big difference in our lives that change our lives for the better. The CP Diary for me is that one such milestone.
As Mike Huckabee’s quote says, it’s when ordinary people rise above their own expectations and who seize the opportunity. I believe it is in those times that milestones are truly reached.
