Think a little less about how it looks, and a little more about how it feels.
That’s a classic Rinse Cycle cue for ya, but it goes far beyond the bike room. From the shapes of our bodies to the size of homes, life is going to look a little (okay or a lot) different on each of us and trying to make it all match someone else’s is going to exhaust you.
It’s going to leave you empty.
You might get the body. You might move into that open concept apartment. You might buy the jeans. You might paint yourself into that picture but are you paying attention to what it feels like to put yourself there?
Because that’s what matters.
If it’s painful, stop.
If it leaves you lonely, look elsewhere.
If it doesn’t fit, find something that does.
even if it looks different.
You don’t have to love New York City or be excited about driving a fancy car. It’s okay if you don’t want to climb the corporate ladder or hustle into self-employment. Just because it looks good on someone else doesn’t mean it’s going to *feel* that way on you.
