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 endure the betrayal of false friends
To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others
To give one's self, 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 exaltation
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
How do you define success? Take time out of your busy schedule to evaluate what is most important to you. Spend your time wisely and pay attention to your priorities. Our lives are so busy and hectic that they fly by too easily. We respond to the next fire we have to put out. We respond and react so much that we sometimes forget to take stock of how we spend our time and energy.
Carve some time out to take a breath and figure out how you can best define success. Make sure to take time out for yourself! Enjoy the beauty around you. ~ Anne
