Those Little Angels Called ‘Comparison’

Want to feel better about the situation you are currently in?  Compare yourself to someone ‘doing worse’…

Want to feel worse about that same situation you are in?  Compare yourself to someone that is ‘doing better’…

This entry will not be long; it may be the shortest I ever post.  But the message (I pray) speaks to someone in a BOLD fashion.  Comparing yourself to those around you is the most unsettling thing you could ever do to gain peace in your life.  Your serenity and joy can disappear in a second, just by sight or sound.    Sure, there’s a 50% chance that the comparison could work in your favor; and somehow give you gratification at someone else’s struggle (hmmmm).  But there’s also that 50% chance that comparison could be your arch enemy; leaving you with more sleepless nights and a weary soul.  But your chances of being happy with who  you are, where you are, what you do, or even how you do it go up significantly if you can alleviate the white noise in your life; or even trying to capture the fairy-tale endings that some other author produced.  I know this is easier said than done (it seems like everything we see on a daily bases FORCES us to do so).  But I challenge you all today to author your very own fairy tale.  After all, no one likes to see the same movie over-and-over, right?  Happy discoveries family; peace.
