Press Forward

“Don’t bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.” -by William Faulkner-Quotesnack.com-thanks!

So many times we look to those around us. We see their accomplishments. We see their strengths. We think to ourselves ….and begin to compare. Stop. Rest. Relax. Remember who you are…remember that you were created by God just as they were. Dont compare who you are to who they are. We are all the same in that we are – Created by God. Instead press forward…and surpass your own goals. Whatever it is that you do. Press forward to be better at it than last year…God willing.  Be creative. Try new things…reach out and stretch yourself.  Reinvent the work of your hands. Imagine great and wonderful things …and do not look to the left or to the right to see what others are doing or not doing or if it is better than yours. Only look to see if you are doing what you can do. Be confident in who you are and Smile!!! When we stop comparing ourselves among ourselves, we can see the unique shine that God gave to each of us. We are all marvelous in our own way by Gods hands he did create many wonders…;0)

  1. Hey, I needed to see that tonight. Thanks Starla for reminding us that GOD made us to be who we are for a reason. No sense in comparing yourself with another cuz You aint supposed to be LIKE them. =)
