Have you ever (on your wellness journey) look at someone else's progress and you become jealous?
I will admit, I have been there.
Have you ever felt that the person you envy's journey is quicker than yours? Or that you wanted the results that they have?
Let me say this. I HAVE BEEN GUILTY OF THIS!
The truth of the matter is, everyone's health journey is different! Just like the milestones of life, we all experience them at different times/points in life. I will use myself as an example. I have been on my journey for a few years. I have lost close to 25 pounds as well as several inches off my bust and waist. I was on social media and saw a girl from high school who lost a significant amount of weight and looked really great. Although happy for her, seeing your amazing progress made me feel that I should be further along in the three years that I have been on the journey. I almost wanted my body to look like hers. The truth is, and this especially occurs in women, we see our fellow sisters as competition rather than a team player. Surely my classmate worked hard for her results, just like I worked hard for mine. That was when I realized that jealousy does not work on this type of journey. The journey is what you make of it. It isn't a "one size fits all".
Just remember the next time you want to envy someone else's results, that your results matter and that they are on the way! Like a horse that wears blinders in a race, wear your blinders. Focus on your journey!
