Love Letter #153: What Success Looks Like Now

You know, I’ve been thinking a lot about what success means lately. For the longest time, I chased this idea of perfection and what society tells us success should look like. It’s funny because when we hear the word “wealth,” we instantly think of money, right? But guess what? Wealth means well-being. It’s about being well in every aspect of our lives, not just our bank accounts.

So, here’s where I’m at with success now:

First off, it’s about liking myself. I mean really liking myself, not just putting on a front. No more comparing myself to others and feeling like I have to measure up or outshine anyone. No competition, no comparison—just me, being enough as I am.

Having good boundaries is a huge part of this. It’s not just about setting limits with others but also honoring my own needs and commitments. This has been a game-changer for me. I’ve realized that showing up for myself might mean disappointing others sometimes, but that’s okay. In fact, I’d rather disappoint others than let myself down.

Being my own best friend is another biggie. This means talking to myself with kindness and love, and catching myself when I get too critical. I used to think being hard on myself was the way to improve, but now I see that it’s about being gentle and forgiving with myself.

And finally, success to me is living a life that’s wildly imperfect and fabulously flawed, but it makes sense to me. It’s not about fitting into someone else’s mold or meeting external expectations. It’s about being true to myself, even if it looks messy to others.

So, what does success look like for you? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Catch you later!
