X. How we measure our progress on the journey can also hold us stuck.
Measuring your progress by other peoples’ path will almost always result in you feeling smug or shitty. Neither is helpful. Timelines in life really only work retrospectively, as in, you see where all of this got you after you’ve gotten there.
Some of us walk around carrying the feeling that there is some kind of preordained goal that needs to be reached. There isn’t, in my opinion. Yes, sure, ride that feeling of “this is meant to be.” I understand that. But don’t think there is some timeline that is laid down for you “out there” and you’re not meeting some deadline. You are where you are. Eat it deeply. Digest all the life that is here for you at this exact moment in this body that you have exactly as it is. Then you will know where you are.
