The Spice of Success


Writing Prompt: If “failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor” (Truman Capote), how spicy do you like your success stories?

Not at all would prefer my success to be bland as hell… but seriously I’m one of those people that feels like in order for your success to be meaningful you have to face some sort of adversity.

I don’t know about Truman Capote but I’ve had my share of personal adversity that has unfortunately bleed over to the things that I’ve wanted to do professionally and many, many times it’s altered or stopped me from doing the things that I wanted to do; and a lot of it has been heart breaking, all of it has taught me to take a step back and re-group, but at the end of the day I am so thankful that I’ve gone through it.

I’ve done a lot of things and have been (what I felt is successful) in them, and at this point in my life, my version of success is a little different than it was 10 years ago. I have a family who I love and who love me, I have  medical conditions that will not be cured, will never go away but is currently being managed by several (and wonderful) medical teams. I am content in my life and how I’m spending it… and right now, in this moment that success.

Until Next Time….
