Run Your Own Race

If you could turn back the hands of time, go back a year in time and meet yourself, what would you say to that person? What advice will you give him/her? What words of encouragement will you have?

IF I could travel back in time, this is probably what I will tell myself:

1. Run your own race. Don't be bothered about what others think about you. More importantly, don't be bothered about the successes you hear about other people. You are you. Treasure each day of your life. Run your own race. Don't try to compete with others.

2. Have faith. Many times, things might not go the way you want it to go. Have faith. Keep on trusting and hoping. Things will get better. Don't give up on yourself. Don't give up on God.

3. Live in the present. Stop thinking about how beautiful the past was and how you hope the future will be like. Live in the PRESENT and enjoy each moment now while you still can. Be there for your family and friends. Don't let your mind wander to things that are unknown, uncontrollable and unpredictable. Focus on what you have now and where you are right now. Stop worrying and start living.

What will you say to yourself?


  1. Hi ff,
    I agree with you. Stop worrying and commit our every requests to God in prayers. We are totally dependent on Him in our lives and should be living life to glorify Him in thoughts and deeds. Continue to stay close to Him. God bless! :-)

  2. Hi FF,

    I would tell myself to buy genting with all the money i have :)

    I don't think I'll change anything. I'm happy with all the things that I had done in the past 1 yr. I'll probably observe myself and amuse myself, haha :)

  3. Hi Jeremy,

    Thanks for the encouragement.

    Hi LP,
    Yeah, you are one of the most confident bloggers I have seen. I guess you know your purpose in life and you are not entwined in the rat race.

  4. Thanks, FF, for your encouraging word. God bless U.
