I just got an email from some “expert” and the beginning of the message read, ____ (name of person)
is sunning himself in Tuscany. Even the greats have to recharge sometime.
Ugh! What’s up with this “even the greats”. I honestly felt nauseated. After I read that I didn’t care about what he was offering or how low his price was. I clicked delete right away.
Let me humbly share with you that when I was super insecure I would try to somehow feel “better” because deep inside I felt less than the entire human race.
It does not matter WHO the person is – NO ONE is “greater” than YOU. A person’s title does not matter, their wealth certainly does not make them “more important” than you. I don’t care how many PhD’s a person has, or what awards they have won, all of that is fine and dandy, however, it does not in any way make them “better” than YOU or me, or anyone.
Our society has created some myth that one person is better than another based on external conditions. There is a saying I came across many years ago, “Be kind to the people you meet on your way up, because they will be the same people you will meet on your way down.”
That really stuck with me. And if anyone has experienced “down” it’s me. I would venture to say you may be able to relate, however, “down” is a temporary circumstance.
If you have been feeling down in life, and look at others who seem to not have a care in the world, use that as inspiration to create the very best life you truly desire to live.
Being “up” is a feeling we ALL deserve to experience. But there is a far greater feeling, and that is inner peace. We achieve inner peace by moving into our heart, and feeling the love that is there, then taking the next step we PREFER to take on this journey called our life.
I just wanted to share this with you and hope it helped you in any way.
