Be Yourself


We were not all given birth to at same time, and neither were we born with same attributes. Why then do we try to compare ourselves to another. How comfortable and sensible is it to compare apples to computers though the compound name is an household name? How logical is it to compare a car to a boat though both can be used for both leisure and business. Each is unique in its appearance, domain of functionality though they may be used for a common goal. Participants in the race of life ought not be envied but encouraged. We ought not to compare one person or group to another especially when they have nothing in common regarding purpose, goals, and functions. I, like many others, have respect for the person who wrote the article shared below. Please read and share with others if you are blessed. Life is meant to be enjoyed and not to only endure.

_It is a mistake to think time is going. Time is not going. Time is here until the world ends. It is you that is going. You don’t waste time. Time is infinite. You waste yourself. You are finite. It is you that grows old and die. Time doesn’t. So make better use of yourself before you expire. And one of the worst things to do with time is comparing yourself to others. A cow eats grass and gets fat but if dog eats grass, it will die. Never compare yourself with others. Run your race. What works for one person may be that which will kill you. Focus on the gifts and talents God gave you and don’t be envious of the blessings He gave others .

Both Lion and Shark are professional hunters, BUT:
A Lion cannot hunt in the Ocean and a Shark cannot hunt in the jungle
That a Lion cannot hunt in the ocean doesn’t make him useless and that a Shark cannot hunt in the jungle doesn’t also make him useless both have their own territory where they can do well

If a rose smells better than tomatoes, It doesn’t mean the rose can make a better stew. Don’t try to compare yourself to others. You also have your own strength, look for it and build on it. All animals that exist, were in Noah’s ark. A snail is one of those animals. If God could wait long enough for snails to enter Noah’s ark; His door of grace won’t close till you reach your expected position in life. Never look down on yourself, keep looking up. Remember that Broken crayons still colour.
_Keep on pushing, you never can tell how close you are to your goal…!
