This is what success looks like

I was hanging out at the pool with a new friend and her husband this afternoon, the three of us giving our answers to, 'What does success mean to you?"

Meanwhile, her 3 year old daughter is running around naked on the back lawn in the sunshine, laughing and dancing and singing.

The three of us watch her daughter with soft smiles on our faces. "Look at this moment." my friend says. "THIS is success! Getting off work at 4:30, lounging by the pool with a friend, watching my daughter be free and happy.

This is it."
