What Defines You?

Today I asked myself... "what defines me?"
Is it my loses or gains? My success or failures? Who decides when I fail and what is failure to me?
Here is what I decided.

I am not defined by a single loss or gain alone.
I am not a failure.
As long as you try, you cannot fail.
You can only fail if you quit trying.

It is my journey that makes me who I am. A compilation of my life journey. I carry with me the spirits of those who have touched my life. Friends, family, and even people that I have never met in person. Those that are living, and those who are no longer with us on earth, yet watch over us from heaven.

I would not change a single thing about my life. Because without all of those experiences, I would not be who I am today. I have made some big mistakes. It was those mistakes that helped form who I am. What kind of friend, daughter, sister, and mother I am.

There are a lot of bumps in the road, and I may make mistakes. I will not quit. I will not fail.
That alone makes me a success!
