" Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey. A path that’s right for someone else won’t necessarily be a path that’s right for you. And that’s okay. Your journey isn’t right or wrong, or good or bad. It’s just different. Your life isn’t meant to look like anyone else’s because you aren’t like anyone else. You’re a person all your own with a unique set of goals, obstacles, dreams, and needs. So stop comparing, and start living. You may not have ended up where you intended to go. But trust, for once, that you have ended up where you needed to be. Trust that you are in the right place at the right time. Trust that your life is enough. Trust that you are enough. "

To say I am having a rough week is an understatement. I had an idea for a post today but I’ve run out of time, therefore this quote is all I’ve got. I’ve got a nasty habit of comparing my life to others, and feeling as though mine is less significant. I’m working on breaking this habit, I really am.
Ps: the photo above is my mom and I, on a trail ride last year. Made me smile today. 🙂
