As I sit here in front of the fire, listening to the Cranberries, I think about how life changes so quickly. The frost on the car in the mornings, crisp air, and the impending doom or delight of winter is creeping in. I constantly battle being “still.”
I once had someone ask me why are you always keeping yourself so busy? There are so many reasons I could give. Because I: …need to work this much to make ends meet.
…have to stay busy or I get a little down.
…want to do so many things.
…can’t say no.
…want to be successful.
The last one is a double edged blade for me. I then have to define success. Success could mean being a great mom, great wife, great poet, or great friend. It could also mean being a published writer, a business owner, or the lead guitarist in Guns ‘N” Roses…okay that way supposed to make you laugh!
All I know is I keep myself busy, and I need to find a way to accomplish all I would like to, while still having a little time to be still.
So, I will throw this question out their to those on the internet that read my blog…how do you define success? Leave me a comment, please.
