My definition of success would be personal happiness and successes together.
The success of going to college and graduating with some help from my parents financially and taking out loans and working for the rest of cost. While being in college I got married and worked toward with my husband paying for our own wedding with small supports from both sets of parents. We threw an amazing wedding for over 125 people at the age of 21 and 22. We bought our first house 9 days before I turned 25 and had a baby 34 days later. All while teaching and commuting to the city.
Following it with raising a son, while returning to school and work and maintaining high grades and a thriving son. Those are my successes.
