You can do more than you think // Encouragement

One thing that breaks my heart is when people don't see their own strength.

I'm sure it's a common problem for most people and honestly, I sometimes have a hard time with it too.

But.... we are all stronger than we think.  

We can accomplish far more than what we think we are capable of......

The other day it rained here.......

I know that doesn't sound like a big deal to most, but for here it's huge.  It hardly ever rains in Vegas, so when it does pretty much everyone gets excited. 

It rained.

Something so simple, but it brought a lot of happiness to a lot of people......

We all know those people.... the people that mean well but they are quick to point out the more realistic side of things. The ones that bring the dreamers back down to earth. 

It's always good to get a different perspective on things, but when you are a big dreamer dealing with others who focus more on reality, it can be difficult........

The thief of joy

The thief of joy.......comparison! 

I struggle so badly with comparing myself to others. In fact it's something that I struggle with almost daily!

It's so easy to look at others and think, man......if only i was as good as them! If only it was as easy for me!

The truth is..... there is always going to be someone "better". "Better" at their job, more fit, has more money....you name it, there is always going to be someone out there with things you wish you had. 

But........ the great thing is, there is only one you!  You are the perfect you, and no one can be you better than yourself!  Yes, you may not have as much money, time etc.  But you are you! You have your own qualities and characteristics that are purely yours!....and no one can do that better. 

Don't let your joy be taken......compare yourself only to yourself! Be the best you, that you can be.
