With all the breakdowns!
The question is still raised.
Success can be also defined as something personal.
It is something that does not have to by made public.
I think it’s more of being able to look back at one’s life and say:”I did it!”
It’s been said that what we do between birth & death is filler.
But it is what we do with that filler is what makes the difference.
The sad part of it all is that because of how we were raised to believe in this & that, the other.
Stay in school, then either find a job or go to college, find that special someone, get married, have a family, live the American dream, retire and wait for the grim reaper to come.
Nowhere in that scenario!
Does it say or tell us to define or be a success in life!
The real definition of success is as well as can be defined as:
Eating at that fine restaurant that we did not have the money to go there but we saved up and it was well worth the wait!
Finally! Decorating that part of the house/apt. with the furniture that we had our eye on for so long.
That trip/cruise we always wanted to take to wherever.
At whatever age!
Going back to college and getting that degree that we wanted to get or so that we can go get that job/career we wanted.
Perhaps! Waiting for retirement so that you could spend time with the grandkids.
Moving to that sunny spot of your world!
Writing a book, playing an instrument, band, quartet.
Study whatever you wanted to learn about.
Visit another country where they don’t speak English.
All these things can occur at anytime/anywhere.
But! It does seem to me that!
They do happen as we get older.
The things we thought were important to us at a young age!
As we become older are not.
With all those things before us!
