|I have decided to find myself a home in the mountains|
~ I Have Decided by Mary Oliver
We humans live in a society. With other humans (for the most part). Comparing ourselves to others is an easy pass time. It's also an easy trap to keep up with the Jones-es. And here's how: you see someone doing a thing or having a thing and you figure you should be doing it or procuring it thinking it will improve life in some manner. The catch here is you're not that person. Your experience of doing or having the thing will be unique unto you. Once the doing/having has been attained the reward may feel, at best, empty. Or worse, entrapment. In a trap you made all on your own. Simply because you did not take into account your own unique way of being on this fine blue planet.
Mary Oliver's decision is a fine one. Reading on further, the suggestion isn't really to remove yourself from society, but your mind and its delightful machinations. Especially when comparing.
Very simply: Be yourself today.
