Plant and Grow in 30 Days Day 20

Plant and Grow in 30 Days Day 20

It took me several attempts (eight to be exact), but today I found out I placed first in a weekly writing contest.  In previous entries I’ve had a 2nd place win and an honorable mention.  I was determined to get the top prize for two reasons:  I’m a little competitive( the good kind, I’m my own main competition) and I strive for excellence in the things that are important to me and writing is my love.   The best part of this achievement isn’t about “bragging rights” or checking off another goal, it’s that I didn’t give up.  I could have settled for 2nd place, but I knew I had a 1st place in me.  So, “I kept my eyes on the prize” until the prize was in my hand.
