I’ve always been big on that “comparison is the thief of joy” why?
Because I've been through it. I’ve been in the constant struggle of looking where I'm at and trying to compare my reality to others around me. You know what’s the craziest thing? That comparison is a false statement because it only takes into consideration the way you see that person and how you see their life according to the things you would want for yourself. It’s not even the real thing! It’s your own lil movie.
It’s so much valuable time and energy that’s being wasted and could be put into visualizing and carving the life you want for yourself.
Once you realize that everything you want in life can be yours if you choose to see things from a better perspective and actively CHOOSE to water your own garden first things will have a major shift for you. You become the alchemist of your own life, you take ownership and control and that can be a very empowering and addicting feeling.
