I try to not be too serious on this blog, but it does happen every once in awhile.
We all know that I love goals, in fact I thrive on them. The fact that we are a little bit behind on our new recipe a week goal is slightly killing me, but we will catch up!
I also try not to offend people on my blog, but it might happen every once in awhile.
It saddens me when I see so many people lose sight of their own goals and dreams because they are hung up on what others are doing and accomplishing. Don't get me wrong, this happens to me occasionally but I realize that I just have to "run my own race". Running your own race can literally mean just that, but it can also apply to any facet of your life.
Focusing on how fast someone else is, how much weight they have lost, how many races they have won, etc. doesn't get you anywhere. It might provide some motivation for a little while but in the end it just drags you down.
Instead, I challenge you to focus on how fast YOU are, how much weight YOU have lost and how many races YOU have finished (or won).
We are all individuals for a reason and we all should be proud of our own unique accomplishments, whatever they may be. As time goes on we may need to adjust our goals but that doesn't mean that they are any less valid than the goals of others.
So again, I challenge you to "run your own race".
