Other people’s success
I have 4 drafts ready to post and yet I don’t feel like posting any of them tonight. The lights are out and I refuse to do any work tonight. I have spent the past few hours reading other peoples work. Work I encourage them to do. I am surrounded by talent. So much so that It makes me feel pretty insignificant.
Over the last few years I have met incredible people through work. Amazing, intelligent people whom I am now lucky enough to call friends. I learn so much from them. But at the same time they make me feel like I know absolutely nothing and that I need to spend ever free minute reading more just to catch up. I should give up, become a Girl Friday and stop trying.
My family and friends are ridiculously talented. I have people in my life that have transformed their bodies in the most spectacular ways. While we chowed down chicken wings, they ate salads and now they look incredible. It’s inspiring. Others face immense medical challenges with the utmost grit. I see them moving up in positions at work. Well deserved promotions. I see people excel at new hobbies and take the world by storm. Hobbies I encouraged. I see everyone around me doing great things.
I am fortunate to have incredible people around me. But boy do I feel small, insignificant and blacksheepish.
But I am lucky enough to strive to be as good as those I surround myself with.
