Ah, success. That thing that seems to always be just beyond reach. Funny thing is, it has no definition. Everyone’s definition of success is indeed different.
For some, it’s marrying well. Being a good mother. Owning a company. Making boatloads of money. Fame. Notoriety. For others, it’s nothing more than being happy, whatever that means, another thing with a different definition for every woman on earth.
