Run Your Own Race…


Day 8, Wednesday: A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all.

As Mums we often get sucked into the hype that we have to be the best, look the best, and act the best to be able to feel any worth in society. For us mothers who work inside the home (yes WORK!) we often get caught up looking at other people’s homes and feeling like we dont measure up or that we have to have a certain amount of money/car/house/lifestyle to be worthy of our friends.

Well today, my advice is Run Your Own Race.

It doesnt matter what car you drive, or how big your house is, as long as you are happy in your environment, why should you think about changing it to live up to the hype of someone else!

I’m very blessed that we are surrounded with friends who have never measured us up before they decide if we can be friends, however I have in the past met people who didn’t think we were good enough because we wernt in the same social circles they are in.

Their loss….

And in the words of Will Smith…

Whats one thing you do, to make sure your running your own race?


  1. Excellent advice Kirsty. I think it’s so easy to get wrapped up in keeping up with the Joneses.

  2. FABULOUS advice and totally agree with you!! How do I run my own race? By not giving a sh*t what everyone else does. Because everyone is different and that is what makes us special in our own way!
