When on our journey through life it is all too easy to look at the next person and say, “Why can’t I be where they are?” Instead of being happy and content with the progress we have made we are disappointed that we have not made it as far as someone else. What we don’t know, is how long that other person has already been on their journey. Many times we are only able to value ourselves by comparing what we have or where we are in life to someone else. We must learn to accept every little accomplishment as a step in the right direction. Move at your own pace, enjoy the journey you are taking and remember how far you have come. When we begin to appreciate ourselves and how hard we have worked then we are able to see another person’s accomplishments as motivation instead of disappointment.
