How many people compare themselves with others and say: “I wish I was like this, I wish I was like that.
I wish I had this person’s house, his car, his child, his wife.” ?
Why compare? How do you know he doesn’t have problems?
But we compare and measure. We want explanations.
You have a garden; take care of your own garden.
You’ve been taking care of other people’s gardens, and the vermin have been eating yours.
You can’t have that. Take care, prune, don’t let the weeds get out of hand. Take care of this beautiful garden, this beautiful life you’ve been given.
How? By not finding fault with it, but accepting it. By not comparing it, but admiring it.
Did you know you are unique? As unique as the snowflake? As unique as the flower?
Do you know that? There’s no one like you.
And there will never, ever again be anyone like you. Never. Ever.
The way you smile, the way you think, the way you laugh, the way you cry, the way you sleep,
the way you are awake, the way you think, the way you are when you are generous.
The way you are when you’re kind. The way you love.
The way you receive. The way you understand.
There will never, ever be another one like you on the face of this earth.
Never. What does that mean to you? You’re precious.
There is a great beauty in understanding and
recognizing the nature of what this life is.
You are more than the sum of all the things that happen in the world.
You are more than all your failures and your successes.
The sun rises in the sky each day, and if you can truly appreciate what
message it brings you as a human being, you can awaken and start again.
