What is success?

via Daily Prompt: Successful

When I read today’s prompt I wanted to write about things I feel that I am successful at doing, but then it felt just a little too narcissistic in doing so. I’m not really sure how to measure success anyway. Is it by the salary I make? The type of car I drive? House?

I guess I measure success by how I continually fall down and get back up. Life isn’t easy, especially the past few years. I feel like I have to fight for everything I get. Sometimes I feel like I have to fight just to keep my head above water. But somehow I do. Even when the forces around me drag me down I fight my way back up. It’s painful, draining, messy, and just plain hard, but I do it. Maybe that is a good measure of success.

About geminilvr

I have been through many relationships in my life, most long term, and they have all shaped who I am in some way. I try to find humor through the pain and heartbreak and find the strength to do it all over again. My blog is sprinkled with past relationships, current status and thoughts on it all! I hope my experiences make you smile, laugh or cry along with me and relate to the complexity that is life, my life, perfectly imperfect.

    You must be very exhausted if You fight all the time. Isn’t it better just to live with a smile in your heart? Smile even if the situation is not pleasing, even if it is hard. Just smile to yourself and be happy.
