Your competition isn’t other people, your competition is:
• Your procrastination.
• Your EGO.
• Unhealthy food you’re consuming.
• The knowledge you neglect to learn.
• Negative behavior you’re nurturing.
• Your lack of creativity.
Recovery is a process-no matter what it is you’re overcoming.
No one is better or greater for recovering faster.
It’s not a race.
You need to go at your own pace, even if that is pace is slow.
There will be days when you feel like giving up-don’t.
There will be days when you’re at risk of relapsing-don’t.
So long as you set your own pace and never go backward in your recovery, you’re making tremendous progress, and that’s all that matters.
So be proud of what you’ve accomplished for yourself.
Don’t compare your recovery process to others.
Remember that each of us heals physically, mentally, and emotionally at the pace that’s right for ourselves.
Give yourself the time you need and deserve.
Just remember, we are all toxic.
Every single human being is capable of being toxic, has been, currently is, etc.
But some people have the desire to be educated on it and do better while others will ignore any accountability and continue to act the same way.
Life lessons it took me a while to learn:
1. Missing people is not a reason to reconnect with them.
It’s okay to remember people without rekindling.
2. You can’t talk to everyone about everything.
It’s okay to have certain people for certain topics.
3. When someone is envious of you, it’s not your job to make them feel better about who you are.
Be you shamelessly.
4. Assumptions are not rooted in fact.
If you want to know something, it’s always best to ask.
5. Authenticity equals freedom.
There’s nothing that someone can hold over you when you’re okay with who you are.
Act like you can’t afford the bread until they find out you own the bakery.
Resting is part of the work.
It’s a healthy habit.
It brings clarity.
It renews your strength.
It gives you peace.
It drives away fear.
It creates space for GOD to do his mighty works through us.
Even if you’ve found yourself with more free time than usual, don’t force yourself too much.
Taking a break is necessary.
It plays a vital role in your purpose.
So, slow down.
Give your self a break from feeling responsible for anyone else.
It’s okay, don’t feel guilty for it.
At uncertain times, it’s important to cut yourself some slack.
Take a breath, and REST.
Change takes place within you.
Continue to be consistent and remember that all you have to do is take it one step at a time.
Don’t stop the process.
Change your mindset.
Cut off shitty people.
Focus on your goals.
Spend some time alone.
Drink more water.
Take care of your skin.
Be an authentic version of yourself.
