To me success is a beach.
I'm off to Mexico tomorrow to volunteer for 4 months in a sleepy Baja town and stay in a palapa 2 blocks from the beach. The fact that I can do that is a testament to what I consider real success: the flexibility to pursue my values on my own terms and feel like I can give back to communities whose needs are far greater than mine.
To be honest, this trip isn't being funded with my WA site (the next one will be!) but to me it represents the decision I made (and must re-make everyday) to live on my own terms instead of taking a cubicle job. And that's something you just can't beat!
What does success mean to you?
