Success is not completing THE project.
Success is measured in small steps.
Success is finding the bedroom floor.
Success is having clean blankets and making the bed each day.
Success is having a clean fork for your son to eat with.
Success is having three boxes of books to sell to a friend who owns a business selling books on ebay.
Success is throwing away two couches, four trash cans full of stuff, three other 55 gallon bags of trash, a broken shelving unit, part of a broken kitchen table, and some random weeds from the garden.
My success today will be different than my success last week. Sometimes success is breathing and not making things worse.
Sometimes success is watching TV instead of going to the thrift store.
Success is picking up a piece of trash on the way from the livingroom to the kitchen. Just one piece.
I could measure success by getting a job, having a CLEAN house, brushing my pets every day, by dusting regularly, by never having dirty dishes or clothing, by getting my hair cut, BUT I'll take my successes where I can, and I have found that for today they are enough.
