How Do You Measure Success?

If you're looking for my everyday blog, click here:

I think we can all agree that a successful life is comprised of balance in five areas: finance, spirit, intellect, relationships and health. Visualizing what determines a balance in those areas is an individual choice, but what is most important is remembering to enjoy the exhilerating, exciting, worthwhile journey. To feel what its like to already be there, while still clamboring up the mountain.

Having watched Oprah and her coverage of The Secret, I know I'm not the first or the only person who sat down and didn't have a clear picture of just exactly what it is I want. What would comprise Kat's definition of balance and success. "Happy" isn't clear enough. Its like asking for a joke that will make everyone in the entire universe laugh. There just isn't such a thing, because people are unique and wonderful each in their own way.

I'm refining exactly what it is that I want, what I could look back at and say "I suceeded, my life is in balance". But I'm quite good at knowing what I don't want, and that's where you start, with the opposite of all those things you don't want in your life.

I want a simpler life which entails unburdening myself of a lot of stuff in my house and in my heart and head. I'm not quite ready to let go of my stuff yet. I'm a long way from living a simpler life. Knowing what I want is the first step. The second step always seems the hardest for me: changing the way things are.

So well put, sister. With this move upon us I am looking at simplifying too...and it certainly gives me pause to redefine what happiness means to me.
