It’s so easy to get down on yourself sometimes. Life can get you down but I want you to remember that you are something special. I know we all have those days where we beat ourselves up. Yesterday was mine. As my husband says, sometimes you just have to pull up your pants on one leg at a time and just get going. Do something to make yourself feel better.

One thing I can be really bad about is comparing myself to others. This is a huge flaw and I hate it.  I know a lot of people have this problem but I have to tell you something that i’ve realized and that is…. Comparison is the thief of joy. It’s true. Someone is always going to be doing more than you. Someone is always going to be skinnier than you. Someone is always going to be smarter than you. Someone is always going to have more than you. Remember, this does not mean that they are better than you in any way.

When you start to have a pity party on how everyone is soooo much better than you, think about how far you’ve come. Think about how lucky YOU are.  Think about everything you’ve accomplished in your life. When that doesn’t work, think about how your best days are in front of you and not behind you. Put away those tissues and put on a smile, dear, because you are one of a kind.

Just a reminder on this Monday, everyone is fighting their own battle. Be thankful that you are alive because tomorrow is not a guarantee.

Comparison

Happy Monday!!

XOXO

    This is exactly what I needed this morning, because I was having the most negative thoughts on my drive into work, feeling like I never quite stack up to everyone else. I appreciate you taking the time to post this, and it made me take a step back and appreciate the now. Have an awesome day! 🙂
