Think About It Thursday

Well friends, I hope you all had a fabulous Fourth of July! And I would like to thank you all for your sweet words of encouragement in response to Tuesday's post. I will certainly keep you updated on my progress!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And now, on to the usual installment of Think About It Thursday.
to wish you were someone else is to waste the person you are

How easy is it to play the comparison game? Almost too easy.  I know that I am, without a doubt, guilty of playing it. When we do this, we are on some level wishing that we had what that person has, looks like that person looks, or possessed any number of qualities that that person possesses. In turn, we're not appreciating all of the amazing qualities and blessings that we have.

Every single one of us possesses some beautiful traits and qualities that are unique to us. They have shaped and molded us into the people that we are today.  Instead of wishing you were someone else or had something that someone else has, embrace all of the beauty and uniqueness you possess. 

God made you who you are for a reason. So by all means, let yourself shine, my dear.

So true! Especially in the blogging world, it's so easy to compare yourself to everyone else and it really does you no good!

Comparison is the thief of joy! I am very blessed in that I look at people and want to learn from them, not compare myself to them. All that matters to me is that I am happy, healthy, and my hubby loves me!
