Success is defined in many ways from different perspectives. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote one definition I enjoy contemplating. It follows.
"To laugh often and love much;
to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children;
to earn the approbation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty;
to find the best in others;
to leave the world a bit better,
whether by a healthy child,
a garden patch,
or a redeemed social condition;
to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation;
to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived---
this is to have succeeded."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Happy Birthday to my sweet sister in law, Annette.
She is one who succeeds! You'd think so too!
