I've read a bunch of rants about how millennials and their need for participation medals. Well, I'm way past millennial, and I want MY participation medal, dammit! A badge for all those little things that go unnoticed and unrecognized.
I loved earning merit badges as a kid, and I've long wanted to make my own. Embroidery machine and software in hand, now I have!
I'm not one for "tooting my own horn." I'm not someone who posts morning affirmations on her mirror. But my badges are an affirmation in a way. A tool to remind me of things I HAVE done, even those both little and small when I feel a sense of regret or a lack of life accomplishment.
