Life is meant to be fun, exciting, the same, happy, sad, and everything in between. I often find myself getting into ruts that are full of comparison, self doubt, and wanting what I don’t have. I have found that when I completely focus inward and do my best to do me, I am so much happier. I have been trying to live my life with a more spontaneous adventures, more intent, and more focusing on every moment that I am in. The other day I was filling in a “rut”. I was frustrated, down on myself and just feeling like I was in a bad place. I had to yank myself out of it quick. Life wasn’t made to self doubt, comparing, or any of that. It was made to build each other up, love each other, and to become the best you that you can be. I have started to stop those feelings as soon as I have them, and to stop assuming. Assuming is where everything stems from. Assuming that her house is all clean when maybe it is just one tiny corner. Assuming that she is always out playing with her kids when maybe that is truly saving her sanity. Assuming that their life looks so happy and perfect when really maybe she is hurting inside and trying to help herself to find happiness. It is assumptions that are the problem, not comparing. I am working on not making assumptions and to just be happy for everyone. If her house is clean all the time, then good for her! I think that it is so amazing that she can do that. If she is out with her kids all the time, what a great mom! So try it with me, try to not assume, and let’s be happy. Lets make genuine comments on other women’s Instagram feeds that will build them up. A sweet genuine comment never goes unnoticed and you never know how much that momma or women may have truly needed your words that day.
