bird-3125202_1280

Being behind feels bad. Catching up feels great! Both are powerful feelings, and I wouldn’t deny you either of them.

But what are we actually behind? Who decides that? And have we really caught up? Every new moment brings new opportunities and new possible tasks.

It may be more helpful to remember that these feelings are illusions. We are neither of them – neither ahead or behind. We’re just right here, right now.
