THOUGHTS ON KEEPING UP
It's easy to get wrapped up in the numbers game. How many followers you have, pageviews, comments, etc. It's exhausting and not helpful, but I do it all the time. Usually, I find blogs really inspiring, but sometimes it makes me feel I'm falling short if I can't think of anything interesting to say or come up with a cool and unique DIY.
It's ok, though. I have to remind myself that I'm doing something that I wasn't doing a year ago, and for me, that's awesome. I can't compare myself to anyone else. Everyone is different. Everyone has their own path. While I can work harder, on some things you need to just throw your hands up and say, "Enough. I'm going to watch TV." I want to do things that make me happy and help me become the person I want to be, so that's all that matters. What other people are doing is wonderful, and I applaud them for it. The biggest thing is to be happy with what I'm doing and where I'm at so I can be happy for other people.
Do you ever notice that the bar you set for yourself always seems to move once you reach the point you were striving for? You tell yourself that you'll be happy if you get to this point, but once you reach it you realize that you won't really be happy until you get to the next point over there. I guess it's what keeps us striving ever onward, that we always need goals and something just out of reach to see what we can achieve.
What all this makes me realize is how appreciative I am of you! Yes, you! I just want you to know that I think you're awesome!
