Finding Sage // Better Than Yesterday...

better than yesterday When it comes to life, I don't have all the answers, but I do know this... Life can get the best of you.  There is always something not being done, something you could do better, something you're not doing enough of, or something someone else is already doing better. But you can't allow yourself to get caught up in all of that.  The idea of "keeping up with the Joneses" is a terrible one.  One that I wish would just go away.

One thing I've learned recently, is that life is not about competing with one another, it's about competing with yourself. Life is about striving to be to better, than the person you were yesterday. I'm not talking about a game of Taboo here people, it's okay to get your competitive side out then.  I'm talking about life.

I am a very competitive person by nature, so this one was  is tough for me. But it's something I work on everyday.  Some days I slip and I find I that I'm comparing myself to others.  Then I remind myself of this quote and the simple truth, that in God's eyes, I'm doing my best and that's all that matters.

Competition is a good thing.  I fully believe that.  But it's how you apply it that can go wrong.  Don't let yourself get competitive with others, compete with yourself.  Remember we are all on our own journey and each of us is at a different point. Compete with yourself, to make you a better person... better than you were yesterday.
