We do not compare + you won't steal my joy.
This is the second time I am writing this post, well the third actually. Here is a tip, save your work. I don't know how I haven't remembered that from high school and college, plus this has happened before.
"Comparison is the thief of joy"
Life has been on the hectic, I almost fell asleep while driving sort of life lately. If someone were to find me in the car on my lunch break taking a nap, I wouldn't be surprised.
I wanted to talk to you guys today about comparison. This is my "ain't nobody got time fa dat!" face.
Last week I kept having that saying "You have the same amount of hours in a day as Beyonce". While I can go off on a wild tangent I want to keep it in the comparison department for the time being.
While technically yes, Beyonce has 24 hours in her day, and so do I. This doesn't take rocket science, I don't however have the same amount of delegated work as Beyonce. Let's be real here, there is no way in hell Beyonce could do all that she has to do without all the people she has.
She gets to delegate and we have to dominate.
It is true, we have to bust our asses to keep up with all of the things we have to do in a day.
Don't get me wrong, I don't want people to feel bad for me.
I chose this, I decided I wanted to own my own business and photography was the way I was going to do that. I love photography, I don't however love all of the aspects of running a business nor do I know how to do so.
So on occasion I get down on myself, I judge myself and my work, I make excuses, and I am my own worst enemy. If you need encouraging words, I am your girl. If I need encouraging words, I can't seem to find them.
And just like anyone in the world, I start comparing my progress to others and I make myself feel worst. But, I have come to the realization that everyone is in different season in their lives, they may seem to be sitting on cloud nine but things could be going wrong or they have gone through the current storm you are going through.
My point here is that you aren't perfect, you will make mistakes, you may take the long road or the wrong road but realize that as long as you keep going you will notice the difference in your hustle, your progress and your process.
Until you can delegate, design the life you love. Plan, hustle and focus! You've got this and for the sake of all forsaken-ness, let's stop comparing ourselves to each other. You are doing the best you can with the best that you've got.
