The only one who can be the best you is YOU! And you’re surprised.
Day after day you find yourself checking out your neighbor, comparing yourself to their neverending Pinterest Perfect lives as I call it.
The long list of questions you ask yourself are as follows:
Why can’t I do that?
Why can they do that?
Why not me?
The list of questions all begin with WHY?
Why? You ask.
Because the focus is on comparisons. Weighing your accomplishments based on those of others. To their standards.
The only one you should be comparing yourself to is you.
You are good enough.
You are the best you that only you can be.
Nobody else can be you. We can pretend to be others. Come off faking who we really are. But if you want to be the best you then you need to start finding out about you.
Who are you?
Who do you describe yourself to be? Do you start by saying you’re like Susie, Betty, or Maggie? Or do you describe your attributes and character?
I am beautiful
I am successful
I am smart, funny, wise, and made individually by God Himself.
He made you in His image to be like Christ. To be yourself. And the neighbor next door He made individually in His image to be themselves.

What needs to change?
Comparing yourself to others. It’s that simple. Next!
Where and when can you start?
Right, where you are. You don’t have to be in any specific area in your life to be ready to love who God made you to be.
Why do you want to be yourself and stop comparing?
You’re most likely feeling miserable. Constantly hitting a wall trying to be someone your not. You feel as if the only way to be happy is to have exactly what they have and be who they are.I don’t like feeling that
I don’t like feeling that way and I sure don’t want you to either. I want you to see yourself for who God created you to be and have the joy and peace He can only give to you.
How can you be your best you?
We are responsible for ourselves and what we choose to do with our time is up to us. Spending all our time drooling over other people’s success is only going to keep us from moving forward in making a change in our own life.
I found that praying for my own heart to change is when I started to see life and people in a different life. Because as God started to change me I began to see my best me that He created.

Are your ready? Do you think you have what it takes to be the best you? It seems to me that being everyone else would be much harder to accomplish than simply being you. So what do you have to lose? You’re not changing bodies so you’re better off finding out who you are and what you have to offer.
What do you want to start working on in your life that can make a change for the better?
