[left]So much of the time we are looking to the left and to the right of us to see how we measure up. From the time we are little babies, it is almost deep inside of us to be this way.
How often do you see a toddler grab a toy that was of no interest to him until another young child picked it up. We are completely content until someone close to us has something we do not have, even if we previously set it down.
This applies, typically on a greater scale as adults as we continue to compare ourselves, our lives, our social and financial status to those around us. We have this false sense of insecurity, as if the person we assume has more has a greater sense of fulfillment.
The problem with this is we will NEVER measure up as we are NOT the person to the left, or to the right. You will never be. It is important to stay in YOUR lane of purpose, and stay grounded where you are.
As long as we continue to look to the reflection of those around us, we will never be satisfied, as we cannot control those around us. Stay in YOUR LANE. Shine there. Be bold. Be there.
