Success? Don't you know it is all about being able to extend love to people? Not in a big, capital-letter sense, but in the everyday. Little by little, task by task, gesture by gesture, word by word.
the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors; the accomplishment of one's goals.
the attainment of wealth, position, honors, or the like
One of the things I've found myself being thankful for lately is the fact that I'm now living a life I used to dream about. I was successful in working long enough to retire from work.
I would say I'm a successful person. Others might think I was crazy to retire in the first place and some have said that they don't understand why I don't find myself a little part time job so I have something to do.
I think I worked long enough for someone else. I only worked at the jobs I had over the years in order to live. I didn't live to work. I was never career minded other than loving being a mom. Although I am thankful for the work I did and the pay I received for doing it, that isn't what made my life a success.
A person is a success if they get up in the morning and gets to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do.
