What does success mean to you? How does success apply to your world? How is it measured or not measured? Do you measure the accomplishment of an aim or purpose as a success? How does success resonate with you?
Waking up every morning can be a success, getting dressed and out the door can be a success, making a meal can be a success, crawling into bed at night after finishing a great day can be a success?!?! Any accomplishment you make big or small is a success. Even a fail can be a success because you tried, you put your best foot forward in an attempt to make it a win, the effort alone can be the success!! It isn't always about measuring success, it is about doing it that matters. It isn't always about the outcome or result, success is more about what we do every day, choices we make, and how we live with them. Living out each day we are given is always a success, being our best, giving our best, loving our best, success, success, success!
Don't measure, don't compare, don't judge, don't criticize, be a success in your everyday just by being you. This is what you are given, who you are from the inside out, this is the accomplishment to live your best life sitting in that place of truth and love. Grace in your thoughts, words and actions, always coming from a place of love, and feeling that gratitude for all that you have and all that you are, this is success!! Taking car of yourself from the inside out, this is success! Being present with those around you, listening, engaging, paying attention. Don't measure success on the grand scale, but in the small things that bring your world together and make it work for you. Savor the success in the accomplishment of all the small things that lead to the end of a great day in our life.
