Chocolate Peanut Butter CookiesBy Mable Tan • Nov 23rd, 2009 • Category: Baking Projects
Chocolate. Peanut butter. Cookies.
Where do I even begin?
Tis’ is wonderful when you can combine three of your favourite foods together.
Chocolate. Peanut butter. Cookies. Absolutely delish.
On a different subject matter, I would like to know how you would measure the level of success? Do you measure success from a materialistic point of view of cars, villas, private planes? Or, do you measure it with a spiritual sense i.e. personal contentment, happiness and fulfillment?
And then again, what is ‘success’? If I am happy doing what I do, wouldn’t I be classified as a success? Or, do I need to show a flashy car and several investment properties in order to be one?
I reckon, it really is up to an individual. I believe that people should not compare themselves to others in order to measure how successful they need to be in life. I believe that every seed should take its own time to grow into its full potential. I believe if you think you need to be wealthy in order to be successful then you’re right. And if you think that you are successful being the way you are sitting in a cave, then you are also right. Because that’s all success is, isn’t it? It’s just a thought.
