#1400 - one answer
For all her life, my sister had only one answer, always the same, to the question that all children must answer countless times before becoming adults.
Who do you want to be when you grow up?
Then we become adults; the question becomes, "Who are you?" but her answer didn't change.
That is what she wanted to become and what she became.
Me, I had at least as many answers as the times I've been asked those questions. And often, I just said the first thing that appeared in my mind because I had no idea. I still wrestle with that question.
Funny enough, she struggled throughout school, but she had such clarity of intention that she pushed through and manifested her dream. I did pretty well at school, even if I didn't know where I was going.
If you had compared our trajectories at any point in our lives, you would probably say that one was doing great, and the other was trudging along. Which one was who? It depends on what you were measuring and when.
Truth is, we were just following our unique paths.
I guess I'm trying to say that it's pointless to compare your journey with someone else's.
