What is success?

what success look like“Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is in the doing, not the getting-in the trying, not the triumph”. -Wynn Davis

This is a beautiful quote in theory, however in practice it is quite difficult. We are asked to constantly strive and to better ourselves in all we do. But when do we get to a point and look at all we have done and be at peace? I have spent years missing the point and just recently I believe I have found the meaning of success. With this discovery come a sense of inner peace and self worth. Don’t get me wrong, I still have many goals I wish to accomplish with my family, and being a mother and establishing my private practice… It’s just that I am finally learning to see what has happened and accept that as being enough. Spending all of my childhood and early adulthood trying to be perfect and prove my self worth to others, I am learning that all I need to prove my self worth to is myself. How else am I to teach those around me that it is OK to be who you are and to be proud of the person you have become?
