Celebrating the little things

Curriculum Vitae cause so much angst when one is trying to put the thing together. Does this show my best side? Have I included everything I should have? Have I included too much?
Recently I was thinking how many things are left out of CVs. Those things we were once so proud to achieve but have long forgotten about now.
I went back and had a look. Here are some of mine that didn't even make it to the CV cutting room floor:
- A Sports Award for: effort during gymnastics
- Second Prize in the pikelet making competition at the local Flower Show
- 50 metres swim award
- Award of merit for rendered meritorious service as a traffic warden (on the school crossing)
- Award for the most independent worker

So maybe today everything hasn't gone well but looking at that list, I feel rather chuffed. :)
