Greetings, Dear Reader! Just taking a few moments to let you know that you can find me over at Omaha Moms Blog today. My post is all about not letting comparison steal our joy. It's easy to do when we are consumed with the highlight reels our friends and family post on social media. We all have our down days, disappointments, heartaches and tragedies. Rarely do people post those kinds of things (unless they are asking for prayer), so it's easy to forget that other people have them just like we do. It's also easy to be disappointed with who we thought we should be (or where we thought we should be) by now at this stage of life. Those kinds of comparisons can be just as harmful. In this blog post over at the OMB, we discuss how to avoid just that. Here's a portion of the post:
Are you a list maker like I am? Remember when you were 10 and you made a list of what you wanted to do and who you wanted to be when you grew up? I did this at age 10, age 15, and again at age 20. My list evolved as I grew older. When I was 10, I wanted to be a writer, a detective and an actress. I was certain I could accomplish all three with no problem. A-hem. (As a side note, I once was in a play portraying a writer who was called upon to solve a mystery. It’s a shame when you peak in the eighth grade. But I digress . . .)
Hope you click on over to the Omaha Moms Blog and check out Don't Let Comparison Steal Your Joy.
