“The thinking of creative and successful men is never exerted in any direction other than that intended. That is why great men produce such a prodigious amount of work, seemingly without effort and without fatigue. The amount of work such men leave to posterity is amazing.” – Walter Russell

Changing Success

As a kid I dreamed of stardom,

A movie star or singer.

As a teen I lowered my goals,

The song writer or a stage hand.

In my twenties it wasn’t about the fame,

Marriage and a good job.

As I matured only one thing mattered,

Be the best mom I could be.

Now I want to be successful in one thing,

Being me.
