Success is malleable
It is definable and infinitely re-definable
It is moldable from second to minute,
Hours to days,
Months to years
It is baby steps and giant leaps,
It is hope cocooned in despair
Courage wrapped in fear
It is the ability to laugh in the face of adversity,
To rise up when you feel like giving up,
To Smile when there is no reason to smile
To move where once you could not or would not move
It is progress out of immobilization
Wisdom in the face of ignorance
Knowledge in the presents of misunderstanding
Comprehension in midst of confusion
Success is transformatively flexible
Shaping into every context
Suitable to all that dare to define it unapologetically



  1. Awesomely beautiful, from beginning to end. I absolutely love this ... "To rise up when you feel like giving up,

    To Smile when there is no reason to smile

    To move where once you could not or would not move
