"Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful." -Albert Schweitzer

     I am no expert on success. In fact, I know very little about the subject. Success has different meanings to different people. To some, it means vast amounts of wealth. I'm sure a large number of people share this belief and the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a successful person is someone that makes a substantial amount of cash. However, this is only one example. The dictionary definition of success is: the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. So if one's aim or purpose is to obtain a large income and they achieved such, then one would be considered successful.

     I feel that a vast majority of people, however, look towards self-accomplishments and happiness in order to consider themselves successful. I for example, love to record voiceovers. I am not at a point where I can do that full time, but once I reach that point where I can solely acquire an income doing voiceovers for a living, I would then consider myself a success. I would be happy doing what I love, while having the freedom to travel and visit my family and be my own boss. "Freedom" is the key word here.

    It is funny how the "American Dream" has evolved over time. Originally it was considered to be an American social ideal that stresses egalitarianism and especially material prosperity.( But the modern day individual identifies with the prospect of doing what they are truly passionate about for a living; for to them.....true happiness is the real definition of success. The absence of stress, anxiety, pain and conflict weigh more to some than all the money in the world. Although some feel that all the money in the world would eliminate stress, anxiety, pain and conflict. Or at least they could buy their way out of such detriments. Everything does come with a price though.

So what does success mean to you? I would love to get some feedback. Please feel free to comment below and as always, thanks for reading!

On my way home today, I put on Spotify and was browsing through some of the holiday playlists when one of them called "Christmas Cocktails" caught my eye. The first track on the list was a new rendition of "Baby It's Cold Outside by Meghan Trainor and Brett Eldredge, which was very nice, after skipping the second track because no version of jingle bells will ever be good in my opinion was a very fifties sounding track with a "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy feel called "A Swingin' Little Christmas Time" by none other than Jane Lynch. You may have seen her on a little show some of you may have heard of called "Glee", not to mention a laundry list of other shows and movies. Either way, I wasn't sure if it was the Jane Lynch or someone who happen to share her (while stopped at a red light of course *wink wink) I did some research via YouTube and sure enough, it was actually her accompanied by Kate Flannery, a.k.a. Meredith from "The Office" and Tim Davis from the Steve Miller Band. I was not only shocked that Jane could sing, but the trio sounded really good together. I haven't listened to the album in it's entirety yet, but one of my favorites is a slower song that reminds me a bit of the carpenters titled "Winter's Never Cold (When You're Around)". I couldn't help but play it a few times while still driving home. On that note, I thought it was worth sharing with everyone so take a listen when you get a chance and let me know what you think!
