Midnight Musings: What is Success?

SuccessIsLikingYourself

What is success to you? Perhaps it is the acquisition and possession of something, money, a title, a legacy. Maybe it is stability and comfort, having a want for nothing, or at least enough to be content and satisfied. Perhaps it is achievement and accomplishment, reaching a milestone or receiving an award. Maybe it is adventure and spontaneity, experimenting and learning. Perhaps it is all about confidence, inner peace and happiness. Maybe it is appreciating the little things, but not getting too worked up about them either. Perhaps it is failure, mistakes and embarrassments, and growing stronger because of them. Maybe it is survival, simply waking up each morning and trying our best, no matter what the day throws at us. Perhaps, it is all about balance and abundance. Maybe, as Maya Angelou suggests, success is liking yourself, liking what you do and liking how you do it.

What is success to you? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
