It's easy to look at someone else's life and say, oh it looks so fantastic, they've got this and that and the other and their only this age. It doesn't help when other people point at you and say what are you doing with your life? Why aren't you married yet? Why aren't you running your own company?It's so much easier to feel down and wonder, when will my life be like that? When am I finally going to get to where I'm going? Life is full of "if onlys" and missed opportunities. But we can't dwell on those, as long as we have a goal in mind and strive towards achieving it, it doesn't matter what anybody else does or says. So what if they achieve their goal before you?The important thing is that you focus on your and enjoy the journey along the way. Maybe you have to take a few detours, enjoy them, they could just be new opportunities and with a little bit of faith and luck you'll always end up back on your feet.As long as you never let go of hope, you'll always have something to look forward to, something to warm your heart in your darkest hour and something to keep you moving ahead.
