Celebration, not Competition

I did not write this, but I stumbled across it today on Jenna Kutcher’s instagram and wanted to share it because it’s so true:

“The people who seem to have it all together, they don’t. The ones who you think have ‘made it,’ they are still reaching. And the ones who make you question their worth, they are likely doing the same. At the end of the day we are all beautifully broken, imperfect humans doing the best we can. Let’s stop this rat race of competition and focus our energy on empowering and cheering and celebrating instead.”

I am so passionate about the idea of women supporting other women, younger women learning from older women, and lifting each other up rather than tearing one another down. We live in a world of such competition and all it does is drain us and leave us feeling empty. Don’t be afraid to celebrate the success of those around you. Her success is not your failure.
