Sitting in the dark, thinking

“When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t
  compare or compete, everybody will respect you.”
I’m sitting here thinking how we all really need to be ourselves
 in this life we have.  Time seems to be going so fast. Valuable
 time can be wasted.  We should make the most of our lives. 
Live each day like it was our last.    I tend to follow my own way
 in areas that are important to me. Sometimes this raises  
 eyebrows, sometimes not.  We all have the ability to choose,
  but at times I stand still in which direction I take. 
 When I falter, I raise. 
 When I doubt, I regroup. 
 If I compare, I lose sight.
 Tomorrow, I will start over.
