Finding Inspiration is a tough battle, we all know this.
You find your best inspiration in other people you admire. Along with that fear, insecurities and comparison as well.
Sometimes, it’s difficult to appreciate another’s doing without idolizing them, because the neighbor’s grass is always greener. It’s definitely hard work to get a good balance, where you learn lessons from people around you but don’t let them influence you or make you feel bad about your own life.
I’ve been there, we all have been there, but we can say we have gotten out. When you don’t properly love yourself, you find everyone else amazing. The more you compare yourself with others, the more it brings you down. You’re no longer getting anything good from it and that, is not an inspiration, it’s poison.
When you have children on your shoulders, you feel even more that you are not enough, because you are more stressed and the feeling that you have to catch up on a ton of things is heavier.
For a moment, stop looking around and turn your mind towards you. Only you. What is that so amazing thing you find in others that you don’t own? What’s the reason you don’t wake up with a smile? What do you want to communicate to your kids, what kind of inspiration do you want to become?
It’s awesome to appreciate and admire all great people out there, and learn, because everybody has something to teach you in this life but, first, you need to clean your conscience, get rid of your own blaming, find out your mistakes, forgive yourself. Because you are human, because you run your own fight and your way is only yours. Find inspiration when you look in the mirror.
Decide how you want to redirect your life and start today. Do you want your children to have healthy and happy minds? Show them how to love themselves. And the only way is being an example.
