While I was still working (outside the home) and struggling with what would be best for me and my family a friend sent me this email.
"To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children...to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better...to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived...this is to have succeeded!" -Ralph Waldo Emerson
This was a different definition of success than any I had ever heard before and I liked! It made me rethink what I was doing and changes I could make to achive this kind of success.
