July 21st, 2008 at 7:42 pm Hi again Allison,
There is something I would like to ask every body.
I don’t think they would respond to me but if you find it appropriate or interesting may be you can ask your fans, and here it is;
How do you define success in your life?
Amazing question, and one that I constantly look at! I think this is a lovely focus for today’s blog!
Thank you kindly, Arash!
Success? How DO I define it? I used to feel like success was how many people knew and liked me. Then I graduated to success having to do with the amount of money one made for their chosen profession. After that, I morphed into success being recognition for what you have chosen to love and do with you life. And right now, I am somewhere in between the last choice and me just feeling good in my own body.
I mean, if I am gonna be all “heady and enlightened” about it, I would say that success is something that starts within. It is truly loving and embracing yourself. But, if you are looking for my honest answer, I would say that success is living the life I imagined, materialistic goals as well as spiritual and etherial goals.
I have a very specific goal that I am super attached to. Now it feels like if I attain that goal, I will be successful. But within that statement is the inherent assumption that I need something to happen other than what is currently happening to be ok, which ultimately takes me further away from “the moment” and finding peace and solace inside; this is the antithesis of the definition I am striving and struggling to force myself to believe up top!
So there is my belief, honest and hopeful.
What do ya say, Arash?
