Saw the movie About Time this afternoon. Made me realize how invaluable time really is to everyone, and how it’s the only thing you can really make the most of every single day. We may get tired of our life at times - what with routines, hardships, pain, and struggles but if we actually think of all the little moments that comprise our day, they sum up to one pretty good story. There are no bad days, sometimes we just have to look at them with a fresh set of eyes. Treat your alarm clock as a nice greeting to a new day, a sign that you’re given another chance to be alive, find joy in preparing breakfast for your partner or for your family, kiss and hug your parents like you mean it, give your brother or sister a massage when they ask for it, appreciate your house help, enjoy your commute to work, take time to look the barista in the eye and say thank you for your cup of coffee, be thankful that you have a job and that no matter how bad it gets, always, always be grateful. You will never be able to go back to yesterday and have a 2nd chance. Count your blessings! God is good. Life is amazing! Have a great new week friends :)
The Standards by Which You Measure Yourself
by Danielle LaPorte
There will always be someone in your line of work, doing the same sort of thing that you’re doing, who will make more money than you. Way more.
There will always be someone you grew up with who “made it” — further than you have.
A peer who is out-selling, out-travelling, out-doing … you.
You live in the same neighbourhood, but they got the bigger house.
Same social circle, but they’ve got the better … whatever.
Same desires, but they landed the dream deal.
You know what?…
If you measure your success against someone else’s results, you will never be free - ever.
The only metric that matters: How free and fulfilled do you feel doing what you’re doing?
It’s not a status question because…
If you play the status game, there’s always someone who can out status you.
YOUR LIFE. YOUR VERSION OF SUCCESS.
