I heard something on the radio yesterday and she said "swim in your own lane"... she made reference to Gold Medal Winner (swimmer) Michael Phelps and said the only way that he won his events was doing the best in his lane and not comparing his progress against the other swimmers as he swam his race.
I have thought a lot about this and I am way past the age of comparing myself to my neighbors as far as possessions, marriage, kids, etc. but I do however, find myself measuring myself against "the old well me". I have constant expectations about what I will be able to do and what I will look like at the "lower dose". Retiring hasn't been quite the relief that I thought it would be....
So friends to live a joyful life I think we swim in our own lanes living just one day at a time and do what we can to have happiness for that one day and cut way back on our expectations.
Wishing you all well,
