What is Success?

Some weeks just don't feel productive, like the one I am in now.
I work from home which is wonderful, and difficult as I have an amazing little toddler who I want to be with and wants my attention.  Today, feeling very unsuccessful in both motherhood and my job I looked up what others had to say, and for a bit felt better.

To live content with small means;
To seek elegance rather than luxury,
To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich;
To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly;
To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with an open heart;
To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.
In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious,
    grow up through the commonplace.
This to be my symphony.
---Leland Bond-Upson

So maybe I was a little successful today.
