‼️ Be THANKFUL for what you have, you don’t have to have much to have “everything”....
We live in a wonderful era. It’s never been a better time to be alive.
But with the advances in healthcare, technology, and the addition of social media; it’s so easy to get caught in the vicious cycle of comparing your “life” to friends or other people you don’t even know.
Let me be the first person to raise my hand as a guilty party. But through my self exploration in 2017, I’ve constantly compared facets of my life, family, cars, clothes, and business to others.
I have to remind myself:
“Hey dummy, look at the Life Goals you had when you were 14, 17, 20, 25, or 30... Because you have earned every one”
✅ Become a father: We’re blessed to welcome our 5th child in 15 days.
✅ Become a Pro Athlete: Been there, done that, had a blast.
✅ Buy my Mom her dream car: Best money I’ve ever spent. .
✅ Win an Olympic gold for my country🇺🇸: *technically I didn’t achieve this one, but I think a Super Bowl counts for being a World Champion
My point is, I went out, worked hard, made sacrifices, paid the price to be great; hoping, at that point, I’d be “happy”. .
Only to find out, every time I checked one off the list, I took very little time to acknowledge the achievement before I set my sights higher.
If you catch yourself saying, “when I get this/that life will be perfect”. Don’t let your ‘circumstances’ control your happiness or life fulfillment.
They will NEVER make you happy❌
YOU!!! And You alone are the only person that can decide to change your POV and decide.... I AM HAPPY! Life AND it’s struggles are a blessing.
There’s 7 billion people on this crazy journey with us.
The grass isn’t always Greener, we need to spend more time watering our own grass!!!
