Do you ever find it difficult to evaluate how successful of a life you’re living? Do you compare yourself to others in a similar place in life? Or maybe you have an internal barometer that you try to measure up to.
Too often, I find that I compare myself to others in a similar walk of life. Doesn’t matter if they’re single or married, work in a cubicle or are a CEO, have never left the state or have traveled the world, I just check to see if I measure up to how successful they appear to be.
Have you ever done such an intense workout that your body felt like jello afterward? Your arms would scream at you every time you made a left turn on your drive home. Your legs trembled when you attempted to flop into bed. Or, your abs would wince at the very thought of motion.
Then comes your hero: Mr. Heating pad or Ms. Ice pack. Separately or together, they make you feel so much better and make you feel that maybe, just maybe, it was all worth it. Then, after a wonderful night’s rest, you’re motivated to do it all again.
