What Is A Successful Woman? Poem

What Is A Successful Woman?

It's a woman who has an appreciation
Of the world around her
And of her unique place in it...
If she has energy to devote both to work
And to play....


If she has the capacity to give of herself
And to accept graciously
The gifts of others....
If she has people
She trusts and is trusted by,
People she cares about
Who care about her..
If she has a zest for life
And a feeling of kinship with all living things..
If she has the enthusiasm
To welcome each new day
With warmth
And joy
And love...
Then she is truly a successful woman.

    There is a lot of truth in these words ROS, everyone has their own idea of what success means to them, I never really thought about what it meant to me, guess I should. roll eyes
    I would like to think that the woman you describe would be not too far off the ideal of success and if it's your definition of it for you I have no doubt you are a 'successful' woman..

    It's a man who has an appreciation

    The gifts of others....
    If he has people
    He trusts and is trusted by,
    People he cares about

    Well this is entirely true and a good write indeed; only problem is, how does one become her? If we were able to do this then we may not need to be here. I can only long, longingly and await...

    This definition of success given is offered by a caring and gentle poet soul. Thank you for sharing.
