New York is one hour ahead of Austin, Texas – but it doesn’t mean Texas is slow. It’s simply running in its own timezone.
Some people will seem ahead of you, while some people will seem behind you. But they are not. They are where they are supposed to be at this time. And you are where you are supposed to be at this time.
There is no great race. We are not in competition with one another. Do not envy those that seem ahead, and do not look down on those that seem behind.
We are all on the same journey, some sit in front, some sit at the back – but we will all get there eventually. And the best thing that you can do is to appreciate and be kind to the people you are with. And thank them for giving you company.
You are fine. You are just in time.
