In this day and age it is hard not to compare yourself. I for one am guilty of this, it is so easy to assume that one has it all whilst you feel like you are floating above water.
We can forget that what you see with your eyes on the surface may not be the actually truth. How can possible know everything about someone when we only see a glimpse.
That is why it is important to look for content within and not on unrealistic ideas that assume make other happy.
Sometimes you can fall under the trap of negativity, where all you see is the bad stuff. That is why it is important to take stock of what is good in life. No one has it all but I am a true believer in that there is one good thing in life even if it is small.
Today I felt sad as if my life is going anyway. I could continue down the negative spiral but won’t get me anywhere, it will just make me feel ten times worse.
The things I have succeeded in is getting up and making sure my children are well and happy. I have read a book and even writing this post is productive.
I think it is important to accept the things you do have and not dwell. Being content with yourself so a hard thing to achieve when there are so many messages everywhere telling us to be like this or that. You feel like you are questioning everything.
I think the main that I have learnt in my adult life is meaning and the value you put on something. I think that is the powerful thing. If you let go of connecting to something you would be amazed at how little impact it has on you.
I think the thing that is key in being content is questioning everything and working out what it means to you. Deep down is it really important to you?
