The Best You

There is some kind of a sweet innocence in being human- in not having to be just happy or just sad- in the nature of being able to be both broken and whole, at the same time.- Joy Bell 

The killing of one's soul begins at the beginning of comparisons with others . Part of having faith and walking with your faith is to recognize that each individual has a purpose and gift in life. One persons gift may be different from another's gift but sometimes we spend so much idolizing others from the outside that we never internally explore our speciality . Society breeds competition. Who wore it best . Who's won first . Who discovered it first . The fact is someone else's success or joy does not take away from yours . There is a lot of peace ,to be found in this concept . We fear what someone else might be capable of but don't recognize our own talent and how beneficial it is to society .

I am a firm believer in being the best you . Society like to box us in categories or rank us by numbers but we are far more than that . We have weaknesses and strengths but that only makes us human . A weakness is just that , a weakness. Sometimes we don't necessarily need to waste time bettering our weakness but rather accepting it as part of us. Having a flaw is not negative it's just that a flaw. The only time a weakness can bad is when it negatively impacts your growth and your ability to do better. 

I know I can't draw. I've never been very artistic with my hands but I am not going to beat myself up with it. But I do have a creative mind and I do know how to convey my ideas so that someone who does have the skill set I'm lacking can create . Knowing your strengths is more important than dwelling I'm your weaknesses or flaws . 

We are perfect the way we are , we are equipped with everything . Whether we've unlocked or unpacked the equipment is another thing. But always remind yourself how great you are . Be wise enough to know you are not better than anyone but that you are different and have something to offer.

This mindset is a life skill. A survival skill.
