365 Letters to Myself

March 1st - Define success...

Just finished listening to an interview, where the guest was asked to define success, and they chose to share this poem as their interpretation…

When you get what you want in your struggle for self and the world makes you king for a day Just go to the mirror and look at yourself and see what that man has to say For it isn't your father or mother or wife who judgment upon you must pass The fellow whose verdict counts the most in your life is the one staring back from the glass Some people may think you a straight-shooting chum and call you a wonderful guy But the guy in the glass says you're only a bum if you can't look him straight in the eye He's the fellow to please never mind all the rest for he's with you clear up to the end And you've passed your most dangerous difficult test if the man in the glass is your friend You may fool the whole world down the pathway of life and get pats on the back as pass But your final reward will be heartaches and tears if you've cheated the man in the glass.

“Who’s looking at you, kid?”

Hmmm, the man in the glass…day 216!

Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
