Our focus should be on the steps we must take in order to get where we are going.
Everyone’s path is different.
It is okay to stop along the way for enjoyment, observation, and inspiration, but if we get too distracted by what others are doing, where they are in life, or what they have, we will miss out on what is meant for us.
Comparison is sometimes a useful tool, but taken too far, it leads to envy, jealousy, and self pity.
Our lives should not be measured using the lives of others as the standard.
There is too much out there for us if we dedicate ourselves to seeking it out to worry about others.
