I don’t know how to answer your initial question, but I can say this: Get rid of those thoughts this instant. Jealousy is a toxic emotion that brings nothing but self loathing because instead of using it to propel yourself forward, and seeing something that someone else has as something you can achieve and strive towards, people turn it into a barrier of hopelessness and defeat.
Nobody’s perfect, and I can assure you all the people you look up to and admire look up to people too. Nobody is everything they want themselves to be, if we were we’d have nothing to do and life would be pretty boring. See the things “lacking” in your life, as a challenge, as a minor obstacle, not a barrier or a never-ending staircase.
I hate that I could make you feel like this, but I refuse to apologise for my achievements because I’ve worked hard for them, nor am I apologising for the things I am blessed with, because I don’t want to seem ungrateful. But, as I’ve always said, if you are reading this, on a computer, in a first world country, you’ve got it pretty swell. Some people don’t have water let alone a computer, wifi and substantial shelter.
So chin up, go figure out what you’re passionate about and get those wheels rolling because opportunity doesn’t seek you out if you’re just sitting around being envious of others, it finds you when you stand up and believe in yourself enough to make things happen. Good luck, I believe in you and think you’re wonderful.
FORGET ABOUT TWERKING GIRLS. CHOPPING WOOD IS ALL THE RAGE.
Take a look at our latest video with a lumberjill and a model in a fight for the fittest.
Both women are wearing the new Carhartt Jasper Jeans, complete with work flex in a great new style.
Alissa, featured in the clip, is a full time lumberjill.
She may be tiny, but she sure can wield an axe.
Instead of time in the gym, she’s constantly lifting logs, cutting trees, and hauling tools.
Show me a lumberjill and I’ll show you a super athlete.
Forget about ellipticals and stair-masters, ladies.
Get outside and be active.
There’s nothing quite as addictive as fresh air and warm sunshine on your skin.
Just ask Alissa. She’s worked in the woods since age 15.
She loves what she does so much that she’s devoted her career and her free time to it.
With countless awards and titles earned, she’ll keep chopping away in her Carhartts.
