While watching Studio 5 today, their theme for this month is to CELEBRATE the success of others! I think often times we find ourselves comparing our success to our friends, neighbors, or loved ones, when really we should be celebrating their success with them! If we spend our lives always comparing our actions to others we will never truly be happy! I know this is something I sometimes struggle with, I think, wow, I don’t cook as much as her. Or maybe, My house is never that clean and organized. When in reality I think we really only see the positives in other peoples lives. We all tend to hide our negatives a little, we don’t run out or text our friends that we haven’t cooked dinner at all this week, or that our bedroom furniture is covered in dust. We see each others positives, more than their negatives. Sometimes I know I need to take a step back and look at my own positives, I focus a lot on what I’m doing wrong, or how my life/day measures up to someone else’s, rather than what I did right that day. Sometimes people need to hear that someone thinks that they are doing great, especially with something new, or something they are unsure of. I am going to make a goal to look at my own positives and to celebrate the positives and successes of other people! I welcome you to try this with me, let me know of the change that it makes in your day/week! I think that we will truly be happier from focusing more on the positives in our lives and the successes of not only our own but others too! So let’s celebrate, our own and our friends successes!
