The definition of success varies from person to person and from day to day.

For some people, success is a life well lived with plenty of money earned.

For others, success can be a short term goal, like maintaining a GPA or losing weight.

Others are daily goals, like writing in a journal daily. Achieving those goals means success.

Today I purchased two shelving units from Ikea. I promptly went home and put the things together without any outside assistance and without major mishaps, not even a busted fingernail.

Tomorrow I will organize those shelves with books and knick knacks and things in my room that have no other place to go.

I did not get much else done today. But that is beside the point. The point is that right now, at this moment in time, I feel successful. In this one little thing, I feel successful.

I’ll work on the other goals later.
