Success is a weighted word. One with a unique meaning for everyone who rolls it on their tongue and spits it out whenever the opportunity presents itself. Success might come in the form of a fancy job at a big-name company with benefits and stock. It might mean becoming a mother and putting your children above all else, vowing to care for them and nurture them and love them with every bone in your body until they grow up to be exactly what they were meant to be, themselves. It might mean ownership: a home and a car and a dog and a boat, all in your name, all within reach. It could mean simply having the luxury to spend your days reading and gardening and hiking your dog in a beautiful climate, with no need for technology. Unplugged and alive.
To me, no pay check or company car could make up for the feeling of seeing my work acknowledged. It has been my dream to be published in a magazine since I was 16. Yesterday, when I came across the two-page spread, I squealed like a child. Success.
