Happy Monday ! Now many of you are thinking happy and Monday do not go together , but remember to not start a day with a negative thought. More on that for another blog.
Today I would like to touch on how you might be making your journey be joyless. This can apply to how journeys to better health or even your journey to a better job or your journey in life in general even. Now I am sure you are thinking how so let me get to it.
Do you find yourself guilty of comparing yourself ? Comparison can do nothing but drag you down and it may not be obviously but over time it will sneak in . If you went out and walked a mile that is great and you should feel proud. But if you are comparing yourself every time you turn around and you find out your friend went out and ran three miles then what does that do to you ? If you are one of the rare ones that doesn't struggle with falling into the comparison game then awesome for you ! The road you walk in life is not the same as any one else's road they walk. You may not be in the same place in life as your friend now and you may never be. What works for one person and their lifestyle and their body may not work for you. We all have to walk our own road in life. Learning to walk your road and feel proud of the progress you make while at the same time being happy for your friend that is making progress on their own road should be a goal to get to. This probably will not be something you master over night and will take a lot of working on but you can grasp this if you really want to . When you get a hold of this concept to stop the comparison game it will make a difference in your happiness level. The journeys in life are long and not easy so why make it worse by stealing the joy along the way. Give yourself grace and plenty of pats on the back along the way.
