“You will not always be the smartest person in the room, and you will not always be the strongest or the funniest or the most talented. But you can always be brave and you can always be kind, and these are the things you should be every minute of every day for the rest of your life. Because yes, those other things, they’re great things.
But these things are better.”
I think the biggest thing you can do for yourself and others is to look yourself in the mirror at the end of every day and ask if you at least tried to be the best version of yourself today. And were you kind to others. The competition is really in the mirror to be the best version of yourself in all areas of your life. The pressure to be the best and to be better than everyone else is just not realistic. Do your best today, and know tomorrow is another day to do better.
