Compare with yourself instead!
Strive to be the best possible versions of yourself—not only for our own self but for the benefit and contribution we can offer to others.
Take care of yourself physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Commit to growing a little bit each day. And celebrate the little advancements you are making without comparing them to others.
Comparing ourselves to others sucks, it never makes us feel good or properly motivates us to change, learn or grow.
I attribute my daily gratitude practise to this shift of general contentment. Over the years I have focused on self care practises, like meditation, journaling, dancing, cleansing and so much more. I practise recognizing and calling out the small moments of peace and gratitude throughout my day. I practise this out loud with my kids especially! But what I have found the most impactful is surrounding myself with beautiful and inspiring women, the kind of women who make me want to be a better me by proximity out of self love and acceptance not from a place of scarcity or not enoughness. To be seen, heard, valued and loved is the best gift a friendship can offer. I believe when we truly love and fully accept ourselves comparison fades away, and we see ourselves for the incredible human that we are.
I am ENOUGH was a sankalpa I used for many many years.
I cannot stress enough how important it is to clean up your facebook and instagram feeds... If you are following someone who is making you feel bad about who you are or where you are at in life unfollow, if their posts make you feel like you are not enough, you aren't doing enough, being enough, or whatever else unfollow. We have so much pressure and information bombarding us daily. Choosing to only bring in what is healing, positive, and uplifting is a potent act of self love. If it doesn't FEEL good, scrap it!
