We live in society that allows us instant access to the world at our finger tips. This can be a beautiful thing as we are quickly exposed to differing cultures, people in all walks of life and a lifestyle unlike our own, but we so eager want to be a part of, so we click follow and our worlds intertwine. This can be a rewarding occurrence as well as one that can be beginning of a demise. Social media has provided us countless hours of entertainment but has also given us a peak into an idealistic reality that we strive to become.
It becomes difficult trying to differentiate what we have vs what “they” have. We compare our lives, our journey, our pictures, or posts to current online trends and furthermore get lost in the shuffle of new updates or the current hashtag trend. I say all of this to say, don’t worry about what everyone else is doing! Don’t focus on what they said they’ll do or won’t do, it’s just noise. Always focus on what YOU are doing and honoring YOUR word, YOUR journey, YOUR life.
Where we place our focus is key. Yes, social media is great for entertainment and business but that’s where it needs to stay. Basing our lives on what so and so is doing, or how they present themselves online is a battle we will never be able to master. It’s a blessing to be able to share in the lives of close friends and family but the biggest blessing is to be able to be happy and content with your own journey without comparing it to the facades online.
Staying focused and in your own lane is a major key to happiness and success. In doing so you learn to appreciate all that you’ve been able to accomplish and all that you hope to accomplish. Rolling with the punches, staying present and flexible, you are guaranteed to increase your quality of life just by staying in line with YOU. Life gets irritating, it pulls you every which way but being able to adapt is key!! Just do what you have to do, don’t stress and don’t worry about others and you’ll be so much happier!! Focusing on your goals you have set and aiming to reach them is your focus. Not everyone experiences life the way you do so don’t sweat it!!
