There are days when I admire what another person is doing. I’m amazed at how they are living their lives. Amazed at the difference they are making. It’s hard not to think about my life. To compare. To wonder if I’m making any difference at all. What’s the impact my life is having on the world? Am I truly making a difference? How can I do more? Questions, questions……
And they sometimes lead to depression. To negative self-talk. To beating myself up about not doing enough. Telling myself that just living is not enough.
It’s easy to want to be more. To do more. To wonder about my legacy.
Then I realize is what I need to do is to all myself to be ME. I need to start with why.
Make A Difference By Being You

If you are new to Friday Reflections, here’s what it’s about. It’s the end of the week, you’re probably exhausted with work, and all you want to do is sit back, put your feet up, sip on some fancy cocktail or wine, and write away. Sanch of Living My Imperfect Life and Everyday Gyaan give you writing prompts and all you have to do is choose any one of those prompts to blog about and link up between Friday and Monday. After you link up, be sure to spread the love by visiting other bloggers who have linked up too.
