AS I WAS JOGGING TODAY I CAME ACROSS SOME PEOPLE JOGGING AS WELL AND I NOTICED HOW DIFFERENT WE ARE. SOME PEOPLE WERE SMALL AND OTHERS BIGGER. WITH ALL THESE PEOPLE HAVING DIFFERENT BODIES THE GOALS WILL OBVIOUSLY, BE DIFFERENT. SOME PEOPLE SIMPLY WANT TO BE TONED, OTHERS WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT, SOME ARE DOING IT FOR FUN, OTHERS ARE JOGGING BECAUSE THEY MUST, OTHERS BECAUSE OF PRESSURE FROM SOCIETY AND SOME MAY NOT EVEN KNOW WHY THEY ARE EXERCISING. YOU MAY BE WONDERING WHERE THIS IS GOING BUT STAY WITH ME HERE. HERE ARE A FEW LIFE LESSONS THAT I GOT FROM THIS.

 
• LIFE IS ONE JOURNEY BUT WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT
AS I MENTIONED ABOVE WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT AND YOU MUST NOT COMPARE YOURSELF WITH ANYONE. I HAVE MENTIONED THIS BEFORE BUT DO NOT TRY TO BE LIKE SOMEONE ELSE, YOU ARE ENOUGH. BE TRUE TO YOURSELF.

 
• YOU DO NOT KNOW EVERYONE’S JOURNEY DO NOT TRY TO BE LIKE THEM.
IT IS VERY EASY TO WANT SOMEONE ELSE’S LIFE AND WANT WHAT THEY HAVE BUT YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE THEM. THE PERSON THAT IS SKINNY WANTS TO BE THICKER, THE ONE THAT IS THICKER WANTS TO SKINNIER. WE ALWAYS WANT WHAT WE DO NOT HAVE. THE PERSON THAT YOU ARE STRIVING TO BE LIKE IS STRIVING TO BE LIKE SOMEONE ELSE.

 
• FIND YOUR OWN FOOTING IN LIFE
THIS POINT IS A CONTINUATION FROM THE ONE ABOVE. INSTEAD OF WANTING TO BE LIKE OTHERS, FIND YOUR OWN FOOTING, YOUR VOICE, YOUR PASSION, AND YOUR OWN WAY IN LIFE. DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO KNOW YOU. IF YOU HAVE BEEN READING MY BLOG YOU WILL KNOW THAT I PREACH GETTING TO KNOW YOURSELF A LOT. I WILL MENTION AGAIN, FIND YOUR OWN WAY OF DOING THINGS OTHER THAN COPYING WHAT OTHERS ARE DOING.

 
• WE ARE ALL AT DIFFERENT LEVELS IN LIFE.
WHEN I GO FOR MY JOG I GO IN A ROUND ROUTE AND YOU CAN TAKE IT FROM TWO ROADS THERE IS NOT ONLY ONE WAY TO ENTER. WHEN I AM ABOUT TO FINISH MY JOG, OTHERS WILL BE STARTING AND WILL BE RUNNING FASTER AS THEY ARE NOT AS TIRED. I CANNOT THEN START TO COMPETE AMD RUN AT THE SAME PACE AS THE PERSON WHO HAS JUST STARTED. IN THE SAME MANNER WHEN I AM STARTING USING ANOTHER ROUTE OTHERS WILL BE FINISHING AND WILL BE WALKING SLOWER AND I CANNOT RUN AT THE SAME RATE AS THEM. IT IS VERY EASY TO WANT TO RUN AT THE SAME PACE AS PEOPLE THAT YOU ADMIRE. RUN AT YOUR OWN PACE.

 
• WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT GOALS
IN LIFE, JUST LIKE EXERCISING WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT GOALS AND WE DO NOT WANT THE SAME THING. SOME PEOPLE DO NOT EVEN KNOW THEIR GOALS IN LIFE AND YET WE LOOK TO THEM. WHAT DO YOU WANT IN LIFE, WHAT IS YOUR PASSION, WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY, DO WHAT YOU LOVE OTHER THAN WANTING TO BE LIKE SOMEONE ELSE. AS I MENTIONED IN THE FIRST PART OF THIS POST OTHERS EXERCISE TO LOSE WEIGHT AND OTHERS FOR FUN, OTHERS JUST FOR THE SAKE OF IT. STICK TO YOUR GOALS AND NO ONE ELSE’S.

 

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READING THIS POST AND I HOPE YOU LEARNT AT LEAST ONE THING FROM THIS. PLEASE LEAVE ME A COMMENT BELOW AND TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS POST. HAVE AN AMAZING, FUN-FILLED AND PRODUCTIVE WORK.

  1. So true, thanks for sharing your thoughts. I often think about that when I’m sitting somewhere and watching people pass. How are we all the same species, but some people weigh 80 pounds and other 250 – or someone’s 4’10” tall and someone 6”? We all look so different but we often have similar struggles. You just don’t know what someone else is going through.
