What was I thinking…starting a blog, KNOWING full well how important it is to stay on top of this. At least I have good excuse for being out for so long…
That’s right! Marlow (a.k.a. GlutenHatesMe ) and I tied the knot! Great friends, great family, great food, and oh yeah…
…we played KanJam!!!!
KanJam is AWESOME!!! It’s like Cornhole or Horseshoes, except you play it with frisbees and a Kan (sp?). We are so thankful for the folks at KanJam to donate the sets that we had at the wedding because they definitely stole the show!
Phew…what a crazy week it was, but man was it worth it. The wedding was beautiful, relaxed, and a complete success!
Marlow stole most of the good photos, so I will spare you the repeats, but check it out for more on the wedding and honeymoon (though there is some that is pending.
But this all got me thinking about success and what it means. We are all so married to the idea of “success” in our lives, but what does it mean. The only definite thing that I can conclude about success is that it is all so relative…in work and at home.
What does success mean as an advocate?
Maybe it means teaching a young person all of the different parts of the body that tobacco actually does effect
Or working with a team of young people to turn a blank page…
…into a portrait of their community.
Sometimes I feel like success is as simple as getting everyone in one place at the same time (even if you have to jump to get there).
I like to think that my success as an advocate, and my teams success, is clear…when a School-Based Health Center is established on the grounds of a school. But there is so much more…more about learning and growing internally as an individual and a team.
If you care so much about something, how do you define success?????
