We Bloom When We Stop Competing & Comparing

I shared this quote last week on Facebook and thought I'd do the same here for those that missed it as it's a great reminder. I love how nature just exists peacefully with its earthy counterparts and all grow together in harmony benefiting one another. We could benefit from doing the same. 

Healthy competition can be good at times, it helps us grow and strive to learn more, do better, become more skilled /creative/stronger/healthier, and a whole lot more. However, where we run into problems is when we focus our time and energy on comparing who we are with the person next to us and ultimately end up competing with them. We were all designed to be unique with our own special talents and gifts and while some of them may overlap with others, we were meant to bring those gifts forward to not only obtain our own sense of fulfillment and success but to bless others along the way. When we compete and compare with others, we often take the very joy out of what we're looking to accomplish in the first place. 

The only REAL comparison we should have is with the person we were yesterday. Be your beautiful self & bloom! :)
