How do you measure success?
Is it the completion of a goal?
Is it the feeling at the end of the day when you hit your pillow and you feel like you’ve done it all?
Is it making it through the day without crying?
For me, it used to be checking off the things on my list and feeling accomplished at the end of the day….REGARDLESS of what I had to sacrifice to get there.
I look back now and think about how misguided I was.
The feeling of success and accomplishment is different for me now. It’s feeling good about the amount of work I get done in a day and having time and energy left to be there for my family.
Since I figured it out I have woken up every day and literally said “I Love my life.” There were times when I actually verbalized “I hate my life” before….I am actually a little humiliated to admit that but I do because I know some of you are feeling that way too and to have that feeling was awful.
What does success look like to you today?
In friendship, love and leadership,
