THE MEASURE OF MY SUCCESS

IMG_1468

How do you measure success? On  this 17th day of the Ultimate Blog Challenge, I am still writing every day.  There are 13 more days to go.  Success in this aspect looks possible and probable.  But what about my other aspirations for this month?

Have I been living according to Don Miguel Ruiz’s FOUR AGREEMENTS?

1.  Be impeccable with your word.

2.  Don’t take anything personally.

3.  Don’t make assumptions.

4.  Always do your best.

It always helps to stop and evaluate your goals and progress. Having a challenge in the framework of this month  helps me to focus.   True, some days are better than others and some posts are more profound than others. Sometimes I can’t help myself and my mouth runs away on me.  Judgement creeps in along with assumptions on difficult days. Some days I am more perfect than others.  But  always, I try to be conscious.  Always, I choose to do the best I can.

Today is one of those not so perfect days.  But it is the best that I could do.  It  is a success.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
