- A poem reflecting on what I have learned on my career path.

Image via pinterest.

it is too easy to feel inadequate
to look around rather than ahead
to question your life based on their achievements,
allow that whisper of doubt gain a permanent residence in your mind,

to compare,
and discount everything that has lead you to where you are.

where you think you should be is a myth
one we enjoy feeding ourselves
what is real - is where you are.

not where she is
or what she has

it does not have to be the end of the journey to be celebrated

each step,
each accomplishment
deserves its glory

that impossible essay
unrealistic deadline
or hours trying to make sense of it all

finding motivation in the most unlikely of places

dream jobs
unbelievable opportunities
inspiring people


all moments to cherish and appreciate

without realising it
you reached that point you thought impossible not too long ago

step back
take it all in
show gratitude for exactly where you are

  1. Thank you! To think a few hours ago I had so much gratitude in my heart . And now I’m reading this????! Thank you again. I’m looking back and I’m tearing up because I am where I prayed, cried, sweated to be. I’m going to continue to be grateful for what I have instead of looking at what him/her has, I will remain content and happy with my own journey. Thank you this poem! Thank you for also being a beautiful impact in my life. I love you.
