Comparison destroys contentment!
Has this ever happened to you?
You get up in the morning, get yourself ready for the day. You look in the mirror and think - Hey! This looks okay! Then you get to your destination and look around at the other women. Suddenly after noticing a friend in her new outfit, you look down at yourself and think - What was I thinking? This doesn't look good!
Or maybe you are okay with that 6 year old sofa in your living room. It's seen better days, but it's comfortable and it still goes okay in your room. Then you go to a friend's house and they just got themselves a brand-new sectional! You go back home and look at that sofa again only this time you see a dusty old piece of junk!
Why do we do that to ourselves? That's the kind of comparing that we just don't need to do! And the sad thing is...many times those same women are probably doing some comparing of their own to our lives and feeling the same way!
Here in Blogland we do a lot of looking at each other's homes, DIY projects and crafty ideas! That kind of looking is a wonderful way to inspire us! But, that doesn't have to be comparison - maybe a little admiration, and some inspiration - that's all good!
We are all just trying to do the best with what we have and that's why I love it here! I have really enjoyed "getting to know" all of you! Thank you for your lovely comments and encouragement!
Have a wonderful weekend!
