I'm right in the middle of summer planning. Between a long-term road trip, going to a music academy for teachers, and visiting family in far off places, it's looking like it will be a top shelf summer! I love moving and traveling. A quick fun fact about me is that I actually dread breaks from school where I have nothing planned. I'm happiest when I'm either working or seeing the world.
I recently found a quote that to summarize tells you not to compare yourself to others, only compare yourself to your past self. When I read it, it really struck me. I'm not a competitive person at all. I've never been the type of person to set out and be the best. I am however the type of person to compare my life to others', and I need to stop it. It shouldn't matter to me who's getting married, who has a house, who is starting a business, or definitely who is or is not single. I have an awesome life. That's all that matters. End of statement.
If I want to improve anything about my life, I need only to make it better than the life I had yesterday. So that's my goal for the summer/rest of the year. I hope it sticks! And I hope everybody is happy with their lives, because your life is awesome, and I'm jealous of how well everyone's life is going.
