Wow, what a crazy start to the year it has been. Made some life changing moves, both figuratively and literally. And I must say, change sucks… but boy is it great for growth! I am now a proud member of the “adult working class,” fiancé to the most amazing man, and I must admit it feels pretty darn great. Now let me be clear, I have my days. There’s been times in recent weeks that the lowest of lows have been really… well, low. But that’s when I grant myself some positive reinforcement and a bit of a reality check. Let me explain what I mean.
I’m at a point in life where others around me are doing some pretty amazing things. Traveling the world, making money doing what they truly love, etc. It’s easy to get down on myself when comparing to others. And I’ll be the first to admit that this is a terrible way to live life. I’ll quote from scripture in that, “Each of you must examine your own actions. Then you can be proud of your own accomplishments without comparing yourself to others. Assume your own responsibility.” Galatians 6:4-5. Think about that, assume your own responsibility. Those words are pretty powerful. Assume your role in what you make of your life. Only YOU are in control of your own personal journey. Let the doubts and naysayers empower your own thirst for growth!
