|Dubious but pleasing achievement.|
Yet, to the person who has reached the smilestone, it might secretly feel like a bigger achievement than many other things. Other people might not get it. Like say for example you win a Grammy, which would be an AMAZING career milestone, but (no offence to anyone) maybe you won it for this and that makes it kinda more of a smilestone. Sorry.
Smilestones happen everyday and they might be as simple as "I didn't scream at my kids once today," or "I remained calm when my teen daughter backed into yet another vehicle," or "Look honey, we still have money left in our bank account and half the month is over!" or "I didn't tell my sister-in-law to suck balls once this evening," or "Not once today did I visualize bludgeoning the district manager with a medieval mace club." Or even "My blog is one year old today and I would likely be insane without this creative outlet and all you procrastiknaves and grinputters!"
Uh, that last smilestone is mine. And it makes me smile inside and out. Thanks for making it such dorky fun peeps. *goes to kitchen to make sandwich to celebrate*
