Have you ever heard of the saying – Don’t compare yourself to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
Everyone has, yet we choose to ignore this great piece of advice and compare everything about ourselves to those around us.
We witness everyone on social media talking about their amazing relationships and we feel insignificant because we are alone. We discover that everyone in our class has been getting great grades on exams after not studying and we can’t manage to do the same even after putting in hours of studying. We notice everyone enjoying the finer things in life, but we cannot compare because we are not financially stable enough to do the same. We see everyone getting married, having kids, getting their dream jobs, building their dream body, going on extravagant vacations, meeting amazing people, and we cannot compare to them. We simply cannot.
We compare ourselves to everyone around us, whether we like to admit it or not. We want to have what they have and believe that if we do, we will be truly happy and not just content with our lives, but this is not true.
We don’t need to have what others have in our lives to be happy because what they have is meant for them and what we have is meant for us. We are meant to live our lives not to the beat of their drums, but to ours. We are meant to live life on our own timelines.
Now understand this, this message is way easier said than done, but living life on our own timeline is essential for us to fulfill our purpose in life.
We need to move through life at our own pace and not try to keep up with others. We need to set our own rules and stick to the path that is specifically designed for us!
So go out there and start living your best life! Go out there and dance to your own music because you are exactly where you need to be.
Live on your own timeline and inspire others to do the same. And don’t forget to…
Pass the Salt!!!
