As we leave for long Labor Day Weekend, I hope you take some time to read this poem and think about your life. The last year and a half has been difficult for all. The pandemic has made us question so much in our lives and rethink what is important. We have all learned to live with less and found what is important in our lives. For those of you who have been trying to understand what a successful life is, I hope this poem provides some clarity. .
What is Success?
To laugh often and much
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends
To appreciate the beauty
To find the best in others
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition.
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded!”
Enjoy the Long Weekend End! Happy Labor Day!
