Epic Win Friday! Talking to strangers, defeating self-destruction, and more!

| 1 Comment

Ready for some inspiration to take you into the weekend? Take a look at these Epic Wins completed by our players over the last couple weeks – including a big win by All-Star Charlie!

Charlie, All-Star (Epic Win: Have the confidence to talk to people at the next Local Game Developer Meet up):

“SHAZAM, I actually came through and did it. It took forever because there’s only one of these meet-ups a month, but I went tonight, and I have to admit at first I didn’t have as much courage as I thought I was going to have, but after I had a slice of pizza and a coke, I found someone sitting by themselves and started there, and just rolled with it meeting others.”

Jill (Epic Win: Age Gracefully): “In my ongoing Quest to Age Gracefully, I am embrassing less is more! Viva le Boheme!”

Melanie (Epic Win: Exercise a half hour a day, 30 days in a row): “I wish I could say that I feel amazing—that I feel like I can take over the world with my new found exercising abilities. Instead, I’m really afraid that I’ll be falling off the wagon. My next Epic Win is to work out 6 days a week for 3 months. I needed something to keep me on track. I feel tired going into that next challenge. But you know what? I’ve come this far, and I can keep going. I do feel proud. Stronger. More peaceful. I know I can hit my next Epic Win. “

Anne (Epic Win: Go 21 consecutive (or near-consecutive) days without self-destructive ideation, by June 3): “It’s lovely going 3 weeks without any of the usual, daily “black hell” between the ears.”

Alison (Epic Win: Meditate 10 times by this Friday!): “This is a baby epic win- my first. I feel pretty humbled that it was such a challenge. I just managed to meditate almost regularly for a couple of weeks. I still have a way to go on my adventure but it feels good to have made a start. “

John (Epic Win: Learn Mood For A Day by YES): “I NEVER thought I’d be able to learn to play Mood For A Day by YES!! Seemed outta my league. But doing it little by little, and not getting frustrated kept me going. Staying positive and on track is the key.”

Olga-Maria (Epic Win: Fly to fl & drive tampa w/o panicking): “i am feeling great–definitely feeling superbetter. my highs stay steady & my lows are so much higher than they have ever been. my allies are great, and everything about sb has been helpful. now i feel like the bad guys are easier and easier to avoid, the power ups are more and more second nature, and the other habits of action, thought, and feeling that i’ve build through this program have really paid off. i am more resilient and i also am more compassionate with myself and others. thank you so much for all of this help, everyone. i really believe in this program & am excited to share it with my doctor, as i already have with my friends.”


Congratulations to Charlie, Jill, Melanie, Anne, Alison, John, and Olga-Maria! If you’d like to see your Epic Win on the SuperBetter blog, please be sure to mark “Share this win with others” when you accomplish it!
