This year is halfway over and sometimes we can look at our circumstances and compare them with others. We become obsessed with what the accomplishments and lives of others that we begin to somehow correlate that our lives are less than great. This test has been especially true after 6 years of blogging.
If I can be completely candid, blogging is not what it used to be. The landscape has changed tremendously, so much to the point where many cliques have formed and sharing information with others is completely obsolete. Everything has seemingly become about follower counts, who associates with whom, & whether or not you get more than 100 likes on a post, instead of the fun of it all. There’s a fear that someone may pass your number of followers or your pictures don’t get as many likes as hers did. And in the midst of all of these performance indicators and comparisons, there’s still a seat at the table for everyone!
All of the things we do in life, whether it’s a hobby, a craft, a skill, a profession, or even just doing life, everyone always wants what someone else has – which sucks because God equips us with everything in us to fulfill it all. Instead of looking left or right, look within and do your thing!
If you’re just getting started doing something, do it well! Don’t be afraid of looking bad or asking questions. The professional was once a novice. Don’t worry about oversaturation! Each and every one of us has the exact ingredients needed to succeed – just be your true self! Your voice and the way you can present yourself to the world is different than the next person’s. There’s a seat at the table. Pull up a chair and eat.
