If you’re a fan of J. Cole, then you’ve heard him say a few times, “Love Yours”. I love those words because it reminds me to stop comparing myself and my journey to others and to love my life. Life is going to happen no matter what! The good, the bad, and the ugly will happen within your life, regardless of your current state. However, if we can learn to change our perception/attitude about the challenges we face, we can get through it.
Have you ever wondered how people who go through the toughest battles still manage to smile while going through it? I know I have. I am guilty of blaming God or others for the challenges I face in my life. When in fact, it’s those very challenges that helped mold me into the woman I am today and the woman I will be in the future.
I’ve taken on a new approach lately. Instead of me becoming angry when life happens, I embrace it. I love all parts of my life, including the not so great parts. Believe it or not, I’ve become stronger and more confident because of the bad. If my life was always good, I’m not sure I’d grow much.
Additionally, I’ve stopped comparing myself to others. I have NO clue what other people go through on the daily basis and if they do decide to share with me their journey, it’s still not my life. When we become so consumed with others and what their life looks like, we allow ourselves to become ungrateful of our life. I don’t care what ANYONE says, everyone goes though something! We ALL face challenges and battles. However, the people we admire are the ones who have changed their perception of their situation. Yes, they are facing something difficult. But, they still decided to have a positive mindset through it.
YOUR life and YOUR journey is so unique and it’s time to embrace that. You can have the life you crave if you learn to love yours!
Love all parts of your life! The good, the bad, and the ugly. I know I do.
Until next time xoxo
