It's so easy to allow comparison to send us into a shame spiral that prevents us from taking action going forward on our journey. Comparison is inevitable. We don't live on this planet all by ourselves. We're all just trying to figure out how to do this thing called life.

We go out looking for ideas. Sometimes ideas will just come and present themselves to us, whether we wanted it or not.
