in Reflections

I’m still playing catch up with all the things that took place during my blog break a few weeks ago. During that time, three important people in my life graduated.  The first was my sister-in-law Marcela who graduated from nursing school. The second was one of my best friends, Marie, who after years of  summer, evening and weekend classes finally graduated with her MBA. And last but not least, my mother who also completed her master’s degree. I’m so proud of  all three ladies and all the wonderful things they’ve accomplished. All these success stories got me thinking about what success means in my own life.  For me, it is not a prestigious degree, a fancy house, exotic vacations or a large bank account.  It’s doing the thing you love and being surrounded by the people that matter most.  It’s like mama Oprah says “The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.”
