Often times we (myself included) have these beliefs of how things are “supposed” to be. Whether it’s from a television show, movie or any of your friends and family; sometimes we compare ourselves to them and hope to one day live a similar life.
I always talk about remembering how far you’ve come and not stress about how far you still have to go. In that, I often like to look back and remember the biggest lessons I’ve learned in my life. If I had to add another to the list it would be to run your own race.
The only person you should strive to be better than is the person you were yesterday. Take each day day by day and focus on the little things that you can do to improve upon. In doing so, the next day you can reflect and realize that each day you are becoming a better version of you.
Remember you can’t change the past, you can only create the future. Dream big and remember your only competitor should be you.
