When it comes to a professional achievement, I seem to have a bunch of achievements to choose from but I'm a little stuck when it comes to a personal one.
I can't think of anything that stands out. I have good relationships with my friends, family and colleagues. I have a cat, have adopted a dog in a shelter and am a vegetarian. I love reading and dancing.
In short I am perfectly content with my personal life but I don't know how I can showcase any of these as an achievement. I have not overcome big challenges to get to this point in my personal life nor have I done something extraordinary in terms of social work.
Is there some angle that I'm missing here?
Any help would be appreciated....

I think they are looking for honest answer about something you really believe you achieved. Something that might not mean anything to others but is important to you. More importantly, obstacles you have gone through in order to achieve it. I think the most important thing is to be honest and explain why this thing mattered to you and what made it special and worth mentioning.
