Life is not a race

…. You have nothing to prove.

Everyone wants to get to the top of the mountain first and shout, “Look at me!  Look at me!”

There is an invisible competition that we are unconsciously forced into.

We don’t know who has set the rules to this competition, but somehow we are competing against each other.

We measure who wins this competition by how many users follow you, how popular are you, how many conspicuous material things you have.

Social media has amplified this race of showing off our score in this race. We post all these nice things to show off how far we are in this competition.

Being an unknown millioneer is shunned upon.

People have to know that we are successful. We measure our success by wanting everyone know about our success.

But the truth is, all your happiness and growth occurs while you are climbing, not while you are sitting at the top.

Enjoy the journey by paying attention to each step. Don’t rush through your life and miss it. 

Forget where everyone else is in relation to you.

Take a deep breath. Inhale what you have created and exhale the worry that weighs you down. Recognize the blessings. Observe the support. Understand divine timing. But most of all stay grounded and positive and have faith.

This is not a race.  You get there a little at a time, not all at once.

Life is not a race, it is a journey.
