Sometimes we get caught up in comparison, forgetting that we cannot possibly quantify or fully grasp our experiences. If we are in competition with anyone, it’s with ourselves, and since there’s only one of you and one of me, the best place to look and explore is inward. With this perspective in mind, we can slow down to enjoy life more the way it is and recognize growth opportunities, rather than anxiously rushing to get here or to arrive there. Time is not against us. It is always perfectly on time. With this new shift in perception, we not only welcome more joy, but show up for others with more honesty, gratitude, and love. We’re all in this together and more linked to one another than we can possibly know. Our journeys are interconnected, and kindness is a two-way street. When we wish each other well, support each other’s growth, share our stories, and cheer one another on, we take care of ourselves simultaneously. Let’s treasure the privilege of having the opportunity to cheer someone else on. Who knows where the echoes and ripple effects of those well wishes will lead us.
