You, me, Beyoncé and Bill Gates all have the same 24 hours in the day. How we utilize it and maximize our efforts is what differs. This reality can be depressing when we start to compare ourselves to others and evaluate our own levels of success based on their timelines. However, it is crucial to focus on ourselves and refrain from comparisons. And while we all should work towards improving ourselves on a daily basis, sometimes you don’t need to do anything at all. Sometimes you need to celebrate yourself as you are. Sometimes you just need a treat. A treat that says, “Because you’re worth it.”
