I was drawn to this quote for my Inspirational Quote of the Week because it relates to things going on in my life. In the past two weeks I have started networking with other bloggers. We share ideas, answer questions, and give each other tips.
I could easily compare myself and my blog to theirs. It is easy to do that with blogging: Their photograph has better composition and lighting. They have way more followers, even though we have been blogging for the same amount of time. They have more engagement. And on and on…
It could drive a person insane!
What I always keep in mind though, is that there is no competition. Ever. We are all unique. We all have something different to offer the world. We are all growing at a different pace, in our own way.
When we stop comparing ourselves to others, and instead share ideas, we gain so much more. It is freeing to let go of the ego; to be in a space of knowing that everything is taken care of, and everything comes exactly when it is supposed to. We are all on our own journey. It is time to enjoy the process – this path of life.
