Self Improvement Sunday

Self Improvement Sunday: Arbitrary Timelines

I took last week off of Self Improvement Sunday in order to enjoy a Self Care Sunday. Yes, that basically meant sleeping in and pampering myself with some beauty products from a gift bag that I had won, but it still counts. Plus, I really didn’t find any content that I found all that inspirational last week and I’m not about to half-ass Self Improvement Sunday by posting something lame. After scouring the interwebs, I found something that fit the bill. I especially liked the first speech by Jay Shetty. He touched on something that has always bothered me and continues to get me fired up. It’s the idea of having a timeline in life. You know, “By this age I must have accomplished ____ or I’m a failure” kind of crap. Or my favorite, “You’re too old to do that.” I’ve been hearing that a lot lately and frankly, I’m sick of it. Just because people have decided to use some very arbitrary and nonsensical yardstick to measure their lives does not mean you have to measure yourself with it too. Just pass them on by and get back to being awesome.
