This quote is taken from an excellent article on Ann Voskamp’s blog, based on a conversation with her daughter about comparing and measuring ourselves against others.
Here’s another great thought she shares:
“Know how Dad always tells the boys when they’re building something? ‘Measure twice cut once.’
“Well, when you’re building a life? Measure yourself once against anyone else – and you cut twice: them and you.”
I highly recommend that you read the whole thing…
