We get so caught up in what we do not have, and what we wish we could. When is the last time you sat down and thought about everything you have and was thankful? Us Americans compare ourselves to the popular figures in society on a daily basis. But what are you doing to potentially get you in the position to meet this popular figure? If you sit there and compare yourself to another with envy, it is like a slap to your creators face.
Everyone has a life of their own, that they should live accordingly to who they truely are. But the only way to become who you are truest meant to be is getting to know yourself beyond the eyes of what popular culture, your friends, or family tell you to be. You are in control of your life, you hold the ink to fill your book. Do it for you, and everything else will fall into place.
