do you allow yourself to be a beginner?!
do you catch yourself comparing yourself to strangers online?! do you? i sure do! i know, it's not working, but still my brain goes "look! she has already X-followers, you are worthless!". "rev, come on, your online class still isn't finished and she finished hers in half the time!". or "how does she do it, i am such a looser?!"...
i know. our brains seems to be wired like this. looking on the outside. but not seeing what is going on in the inside, or in this case, what 'she' has done already to be where they are.
everybody is unique. everybody is walking their own path and their own journey.
the worst thing you can do is keep looking to others on social media (before social media, we were looking at our neighbours new car and were thinking "how the heck can they buy a new car?!"....
so every single day i make a promise to myself. "you have got to be a beginner before you can be anything else". and it is totally OKAY. to be a beginner. to not be where 'they' are already. to enjoy your journey exploring, finding out your path and most important: celebrate every single success you achieve! because the fact that you started anything is GOLD :).
so remember that being a beginner is a GOOD thing :)
