Even those who seem the strongest have set backs.
Superman had kryptonite, Aquaman was lack of water, Green Lantern was yellow, Shazam was saying his own name… all things that caused them pain…
Mine is comparison. I compare myself to other trainers – I compare myself to the abilities of others or their highlight reels, a.k.a. social media.
Do you know what my word for 2019 is? CONFIDENCE… and I have not felt less confident than I do right now. And here is the kicker – it is not because others have it together and I don’t. It is not because I have a lack of knowledge.
It is because MY priorities are out of whack. It is because I have compared myself to what others have going on… It is because I am having a hard time prioritizing important things in my life – because I am so focused on scrolling through other peoples, businesses (etc) highlight reel…
A friend was over and was watching me look at my phone and mentioned to me, “You scroll so fast, do you even stop to look at anything?” And here is why I don’t – and it is a personal issue… if I stop for a certain moment of time to look at someone else’s snap shot of their life, then I start to compare and over analyze my own life… and the standards I have placed on myself…
So this is what I need to do for ME… My Husband, My Daughter, My Family, My Friends… I am taking a BREAK from social media. I am taking a BREAK from things that DRAIN my energy.
I will still be around to answer emails, answer texts, answer calls… but as far as social media goes – you wont see me… I just need this time to recharge, revamp, and restructure ME.
If you need me – I am STILL HERE FOR YOU… firstname.lastname@example.org.
