“it’s not a sprint , but rather a marathon.”
Said a friend to me this morning, and the minute he said it, l knew l had to record these words, repeat them over and over again, until they were embedded in my very soul.
It was a much needed reminder for each and every one of us as we go along this life. How cool would life be for all of us, if we kept this in mind. Many at times we are kept awake at night, troubled about our lagging progress, worried about how our counterparts seem to be progressing steadily in this race called life, but alas, remember it’s a marathon.
We all have different strengths, different abilities, different lanes and more often different start times. Hence it is important to keep our eyes on the finish line and neither look left nor right, for life is an individual race.
Comparison is a thief of joy! Never make the mistake of comparing yourself, for we are all not the same. We are all destined for different things and the sooner you realize that the better life will be for you.
As for me, l will continue to strive to be
- patient, gentle and kind to myself
- not compare myself
- & be the best person l can be
