Between Social Media and TV, Movies, Ads, etc…there are millions of messages thrown at us everyday. Telling us what we “should” or “should not” be. What you should have, how much money you should make or spend…blah blah blah. It’s great to become motivated and inspired by other women, but it can become an unhealthy obsession. Everyone is at a different place. A different step in life. A different chapter. Different circumstances. It’s not fair to compare yourself to anyone other than YOU.
I am definitely guilty of the comparing game, but when I re-focus and think about where I was 1 year ago or even a few months ago, I realize that I’ve made progress. I’m heading in the right direction. So this week work on comparing yourself to YOU and only you!! You can look back at past photos, journals, facebook- whatever. If you aren’t headed in the direction you want to be going, only YOU can decide to change gears and go where you want to go. This applies to all aspects of life- fitness and physical health, emotional and spiritual well-being, career and school life, etc. No one can force you, just like you can’t force anyone else to change. We all decide for ourselves.
Happy Monday! Have a great week. Here’s to a step in the right direction…..
