We all want success, there is no denying that, but what exactly is success.  When I first started blogging I thought success was measured in viewer numbers, followers, and sponsors, but now I see what true success is.  Success is loving what you do, and blogging is one thing that I truly love.  I love to write, I love to work with other bloggers, and I love to share my life with you.  The sponsors are just an added bonus to all the fun I am having writing for this blog.  And my happiness, is how I measure my success.

While I was beginning to write this post, I found this quote.  I think it completely sums up what success is for me: love and belief in what I'm doing and myself, which ultimately will lead to success and true happiness.  I will definitely be keeping this in mind as I take the ACT today!

How do you measure your success?

P.S. If you saw my post on twitter about me falling down the stairs... that actually happened!  I went head first down five steps at school.  The saddest part was I broke my Alice and Olivia mug that Jason bought, but other than that no emotional or physical trauma other than embarrassment haha!


  1. Eep! My sister is taking the ACT tomorrow too!

  3. Good luck on your ACT, you will do great! I definitely measure success in whether I am happy or not, if you're not happy it's time to make a change, you only get one life to live!

  4. I hope your ACT went well!
