Welcome to August! It is time for our first of the month reality check!
I was watching an interview with Bronte Barratt, an Australian Olympic swimmer who has just won a Bronze medal in the London Olympics and when asked what advice she would give her younger team members she replied that she tells them to……..
swim their own race, not to worry about the others and just do their own thing. This is one of my favourite new mottos in life. I now choose to run my own race and have made a conscious decision to let others do their own thing. Concerning ourselves with everyone elses business can be quite negative, stressful and soul-destroying. Wondering why others can do things better, have more money, seem luckier, have more friends, seem happier, are thinner, are more attractive, have better jobs etc can breed jealously, stress, insecurity, gossiping ways, depression and can alienate us from others. We are all individuals and are here to “run our own race” and to experience our very own unique lives. Let go of the desire to compare your life to others….live your life, nurture yourself and make choices for you that FEEL true and right for you!
How about making this month the month to stop comparing, stop judging and be yourself! Remember COMPARE=DESPAIR! Make choices and decisions that feel right for you, from the heart….let others be and do their thing and start to RUN YOUR OWN RACE!
Do you run your own race? Let me know?
