I tend to derail periodically and make life more difficult than it really has to be. When my husband noticed me struggling for a few days, feeling like I wasn't accomplishing much, he sent a reminder via, Ralph Waldo Emerson. After spending some time reading "What is Success?" I decided I am doing just fine in this world, with the little things I do. So I went outdoors, turned on my electric bubble machine, and put on my gardening gloves, with the reassurance that I am indeed successful, in doing my part in this world.
What is Success?
To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics
and 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 know even one life has breathed
easier because you have lived;
This is to have succeeded.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
