At times, it’s hard to be 23 years old and be promptly sure that I have not done anything “note-worthy” in my life yet.

I can’t help but compare my life to others’ sometimes. Sometimes, I feel like my life is better, most of the time, I think to myself, “dang, my life sucks!” –not literally though! Mostly because I’m still in school.  But then sometimes, I stop and say, “Hey, I’ve done shit, I’ve been to places and most definitely experienced more than others” And then I become convinced again that my life is cool.

Truthfully speaking though, I need to stop comparing myself to others, I need to stop peeking through other people’s stashes and accolades. I should be focused on me and me only. Comparing myself to others will not only bring me shit loads of stress, it would also bring me pain and not-so -needed insecurity. I need to remind myself to always steer clear of those toxins. It’s not safe.

You should do the same too. Remind yourself to always focus on yourself. You are a work in progress. You’re gonna be a masterpiece. Always remember, Michelangelo Buonarroti didn’t finish his Sistine Chapel masterpiece in a day.
