Welcome to a new week, a new day, a new breath to make the life you want for yourself.

It's a time, right now, full of potential.

And, also, though we may hate to admit it, fear.

We open social media, we see the news, and we see people doing what we are already doing, but better.

We see people living the life we dream of one day living, and wonder if there will be room for us there, too.

We see them more successful, we see them wealthier, better.

And it is hard not to compare.

It's hard not to give up.

It's hard not to compete.

To try to show them, to "one up", or even just do what they do, despite it feeling a bit inauthentic or even bad to compete.

It's hard not to get caught up in a web of negativity and darkness that consumes you, and makes you feel like you'll never measure up, you'll never achieve what you so desperately want.

So here's a hint:

Stop competing.

Stop measuring yourself against others.

You have a life that no one else has lived, and they have lived a life that no one else will live.

You experiences are not theirs, and vice versa.

BUT.

You can ask them how they are doing it, or how they did it. Maybe they won't want to share, but maybe they will.

And if you don't feel comfortable asking them, then watch (in a non-stalker way!) from a distance and see how they do it. 

Learn from them.

See what you would do differently to stay authentic to your journey, and see what you would do the same.

If they want to share their journey with you, so much the better, because nothing bad happens when people share and collaborate.

And if they don't, or if you can't ask, nothing bad happens from learning from others' journeys and trying to use that experience to help guide yours.

Take that fire that would normally be used in jealousy, fear, and feeling less-than, and transform it into a burning passion to help yourself succeed.

I know you can do this.

I know you can!

Go get that dream, and make it yours.

I'm cheering you on.

Hugs,

Meghann
