I am, by nature, an introvert and for some strange reason, constantly discuss, debate and set standards for myself, within myself. So Triumph comes when I meet or exceed those invisible lines.
I feel triumphant when I cross the finish line of a marathon and I feel just as triumphant for having completed Photo 101 and learned so much along the way.
It brings so much joy when I “beat” winter’s chill & frost and manage to get my tropical fruits to reach full growth and ripen, just like they would in sunny Singapore. It’s a Gardener’s Obsession satiated.
As for Contrast ~ that is forthcoming because what is now Green will become all shades of Red to subdue my acute Tomatomania Syndrome.
So at the end of the day … Life goes on until the next Blogging University course or marathon I sign up with, not to compete but to complete, to experience my self-set definition of Triumph.
