Do you think success is always doing the best with the task at hand?

Are you helping others along the way?

Find out how Motivational Blogger Evelyn Foreman sees things from her own perspective.

What is your definition of success?

There is a wonderful quote I learned as a child in grade school that has always stuck with me by Ralph Waldo Emerson. The title is: To Laugh Often and Much.

To laugh often and much;

to win the respect of the intelligent people

and the affection of children;

to earn the appreciation of honest critics

and endure the betrayal of false friends;

to appreciate beauty;

to find the best in others;

to leave the world a bit better

whether by a healthy child, a garden patch,

or a redeemed social condition;

to know that one life has breathed easier

because you lived here.

This is to have succeeded.

In my words, success is always doing the best I can with the task at hand, because no true to myself and helping others along the way.

What do you fear the most?

The inability to gain perspective is to lose my grounding in life. This is what I fear the most. If I lose perspective, I may lack gratitude & fall prey to getting caught up in situation, and circumstance. Unable to see the big picture, I would get caught up and forget about the good, The Gift, that is Life.

What qualities do you admire in others?

I admire those who embrace life wholeheartedly and live true to themselves. I admire those with the indomitable spirit to rise, over and over again in spite of adversity. I admire those who choose to remain gentle and loving despite hardships and challenges in life.

What area of life makes you feel the best?

Of all the roles I play: mom, wife, friend, author, entrepreneur, being mom to a loving family is my greatest work and reward. Being present to fully hear, see and understand others make me feel my best, at home and in my work. I believe that life is an integrated process and many have learned to compartmentalize.

Rather than bringing wholeness and authenticity to all their endeavors, most have learned to deal with what they think others want from them, as though their roles in life are more important than their soul itself. I love reminding others of their greatness.

Is there anything you can’t let go, but you know you should?

To the best of my ability, I practice non-attachment (to people, places and things) as a way of life. Although it is an ideal, I am fully aware that it is a practice: dynamic, ever changing and requires full participation. I’m not so sure I can ever not be attached to my children and family. They are my life.

What life experience changed the way you see and define life?

My mother passed when I was 16. This helped me understand the fragility of life, and that each moment is absolutely precious, to be engaged and to live fully to the allegiance of one’s soul.

When life pushes you over, how do you react?

My reaction would be like anyone else’s: “What? What was that 2×4 that just bonked me?” But then, I let it be, present to the confusion and turmoil within me. Allowing myself time to process my emotional reaction (only way to get to it is to get through it). Over time, I would allow it to flame the fire that fuels me, asking myself: “What else is possible?” The right answer always arrives.

Who/what motivates you the most?

My children and family – to love, serve and provide for them is my 1st priority. Helping others along the way is a blessing. All that more bates me must falls under my desire and path to live aligned to my soul’s purpose: to be authentically me (and to never betray my own heart).

What qualities do you have that others should possess?

I have an optimistic outlook I’d be happy to share. I believe that anyone can do anything they set out to do.

I think it takes all kinds to make the world go ‘round! It is the diversity and abundance of people that make life as we know it. So long as there is balance, I think the world could use more positivity, inclusivity & humility and less struggle, blame and dismissiveness.

What words of wisdom would you share with our community?

It is okay to feel, to emote, to cry. Everything serves us to help us remember that we are all precious. It breaks us down, but only in the despair of our ego mind can we find our own highest, most authentic, noble self.
