Is it OK to Get a Medal When You Don’t Win but Feel Like a Winner?

Should Every one Get a Trophy? Participation medal

Another year, another Miles for Migraine walk completed.  Last year I participated virtually and received a medal for my participation.  This year, I was at the race and again received a medal.  I wasn’t a winner in either race (although I was the top fundraiser and team My Migraine Life was also so I consider that a win!!!).

It begs the question, are participation trophies ok?  Here is my answer 

What do you think?

I tell stories of My Migraine Life. I'm a mom, wife, teacher, and chronic migraine sufferer. I tell my stories and advocate in my life searching for health in a positive honest way.
