Keep Pace or Keep Peace
Keep Pace - compare yourself with others. Try to keep up with the Jones's
Keep Peace - compare yourself with no one and just be you!
It's so easy to get stuck in a rut of comparison. One person is doing better in business than you are, doing better at fitness, losing that baby weight in a snap, their marriage might look better, her children eat vegetables like your children eat cookies, you can't run a mile, your job stinks, you can't cook like she does, your mom bun looks like you rolled outta bed, hers looks like she's on the red carpet! You know what I mean? You just feel inadequate... because you're glancing over your shoulder at someone else.
Don't do that to yourself. Don't keep pace with anyone, instead, do your thing! Embrace your journey because it's special and in your own time.
2 Corinthians 10:12 When they measure themselves with one another and compare themselves with one another, they are without understanding.
