What Success Means to Me

Success is in the eye of the beholder. While some believe money and fame defines success to them, others see success in different ways. For me, my success is defined by what I can do for my parents. True success is taking care of them the way they have for me and my siblings.

As immigrants, I feel my parents gave up everything to give us a better life. Looking back now, I can say there’s not a chance I could have sacrificed as much as them at this point in my life. Right there is where my appreciation for them is born. They left everyone they know and came to a country with a whole new language and way of life all so we could have a better life.

Now that I am older and have learned so much from them, my main goal is to give them anything they want and let them enjoy each day they have left on this planet, so they know their sacrifice didn’t go unnoticed or unappreciated.

So what does success mean to me? Success means doing everything I can to keep my parents as happy as possible for as long as possible. Seeing them and taking care of them for trips has made me feel successful and makes me continue to strive for more to keeping seeing them smile.

Below are a few photos they took on recent trips. All photo credit to my mom and dad. I feel like they are two little iPhone photographers and their photos come out like postcards.
