Feeling down today so I’ll just post this prayer made by Max Ehrmann.
I only became acquainted with this when I was working. The advice are really spot on for me.
- If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. – So true. So eventhough I’m envious of the photographers in 500px.com, I’m better than others. No need to be bitter. Other persons are richer but I’m doing pretty ok.
- Keep interested in your own career – Sigh! Seems like I’m slipping in this regard.
- Take kindly the counsel of years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. – Is there such a thing as a quarter-life or one-third life crisis? What if I have not yet enjoyed my youth.
