Over the past year I’ve been amazed at the number of people who are the best marketers, smartest web developers, greatest billionaires, and DIY stay-at-home Mom’s who make their own baby food!
You all must be really great.
Granted, there’s nothing wrong with being those things but I was noticing something irritating about myself.
I was trying to be all these people! Can you believe it? I spent so much time on Facebook being jealous that I was trying to achieve all those goals. Don’t even get me started with those ads. They make you feel like you could gain thousands of customers, lose 100 pounds, or get any woman you want all if you use their product.
Really? It’s a bit over the top isn’t it?
What I’ve noticed about myself in 2016 so far is that I’m being more intentional about my relationships with friends, family, and co-workers. Or at least trying to be.
I stopped chasing after more money and trying to be the greatest at everything. Instead, I’ve been spending more time with my son (with the TV off and my phone upstairs). I started writing letters. That’s right. I picked up an actual pen with ink in it and wrote a letter. Without my phone.
I made my own bread. I started eating healthiesh. I even workout on some days. I take things in stride now whereas before I was always trying to keep up with the Jones’s.
There’s no life in keeping up. Slowing down and taking everything in means so much more.
