The amount of times I catch myself wondering what was I doing on this day last year..... is absurd. I compare myself to the past constantly. I think the reasoning is that I always want to be moving forward. I never want to look back at my life and thinking, wow I’m doing all the exact things I was doing last year. I want to push myself harder than that. I want my style, photography, relationships, career, heath, all of it to be improving always.
The problem is that we as humans have been taught to look at happiness as if it’s a destination rather than a state of emotion. We countinuely say to ourselves if I can just do this, if I can just be that, then then I’ll be happy. Well, then what happens when we get there?
This is something I have to remind myself day after day. It's okay if last year on this day you were doing something amazing. Not every single day has to be astonishing. Things change, people change, but sometimes they stay the same. And sometimes, that's okay.
