You measure the size of the accomplishment by the obstacles you had to overcome to reach your goals.

Sitting and thinking of all of the struggles you have experienced makes you feel even more motivated and proud of the goals reached, regardless. It is quite similar to swimming, when the sea is calm, all enjoy diving in, but when it’s wavy only the bravest take the risk and overcome this as an obstacle, diving and then re-emerging is you accomplished goal. So, if you look back at them, feel pleased.
