We all know this. Comparison is terrible. It's definitely something nobody should do, yet we all fall into this trap every now and again. We compare ourselves to those around us...is she prettier than us? Are his muscles bigger than mine? Is she more successful than me?
This is a terrible game. Terrible.
All it does it end up making us feel bad about ourselves. And for what?! We are all beautiful and unique and special. We are all exactly as we're meant to be.
Instead of comparing ourselves to others, we should celebrate their victories and help support and build them up. We are all here to help one another, and believe me, there's more than enough work, people, friends, etc. for everyone to be supported!!
I have a bad habit, especially as I'm really diving into my business, of looking at other people in their businesses and feeling truly envious of their successes or how successful they appear to be.
Because the truth of the matter is, I have zero knowledge of their success, where they are in their journey, where they started from, or where they're going.
But that shouldn't matter.
What matters is that they are out there on their journey! That they had the courage to start! And regardless of where they are in that journey, I should be proud and celebrate their courage and their success!
For all I know, I could be comparing my beginning to someone else's middle...and that isn't a fair comparison at all.
I know I'm not where I want to be...but I also know that I will be there one day very soon! I'm doing what I love with the man I love and that's the most important thing to me.
So here's to resetting my mindset, focusing on myself and my journey, and doing what I love most.
I'm excited for the journey I'm on, even if it scares me sometimes, even if I get envious, even if I don't know HOW I'm going to get there! I just know that I had the courage to start. And I have the courage to continue on. And I have the courage to see it through!
So for all of you who have taken that first step on your journey, whatever it looks like for you, I send you a HUGE congratulations!! I'm proud of you for knowing what you want and taking the steps, the actions to make it happen!!
Keep putting one foot in front of the other, taking those steps, and finding success wherever it takes you!
Have a beautiful week!
With love and wellness,
