Comparison Kills Joy!

Ah comparison….the killer of all joy. Careful not to fall into it’s sticky trap. Society in general is really really good about sharing successes with others and not so good about sharing the struggle it took to achieve them.

We’re great at telling others about how much weight we lost, money we made, houses we bought, degrees we earned, trips we took, etc.

Yet we fail to focus on how many times we may have dreaded to go to the gym or the times we stepped on the scale and stepped off feeling defeated. That money we made didn’t come easy…it probably took tons of hours of hard work, long nights, and missed outings.

Ugh…and the house..yeah I bet there where a million ups and downs and it’s just the beginning.

Don’t miss understand me I’m not trying to rain on anyones parade. However, it’s important to remind ourselves that most of the time what we see and hear are just the highlights.

DAMN…but those abs can look amazing thooooo right? I mean kudos to those who have them and who put in the work in the kitchen and in the gym 👏. But this girl…while passionate about wellness isn’t willing to do everything it takes to earn those abs…so why on earth would I compare myself to them? Doing so will only discredit me from the work I do put in and leave me feeling deflated. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Next time someone shares about a success go ahead and give them that ❤️👏 abs 🙌…and keep it moving.

Spare yourself the anguish of comparison because we all know the grass isn’t always greener on the other side…it’s greener where you choose to water it. While you’re at it spray some miracle grow on it too 🌱
