Comparison is the THEIF of Joy

Wow. Is this month over yet?! August has NOT been nice to us. It's been one life changing crisis after the other. Back to back. AHHHHH I just wanted to scream. I felt like I was drowning.

Now, life has seemed to calm down some and I feel like I can breathe again. THANK THE LORD. Have you ever felt that way? Like life was overtaking you? Have you let it? I know I did. Sometimes that is ok, but for me.. I can't let my life feel out of control like that. I took the time I needed but I'm back into my routine now. Well, somewhat. Still have some work to do!

A lot of things were sacrificed for the well being of my life in general. For my sanity. Now I need to balance my workouts and running back into my life. It comes with time! and in that time I have to remember that COMPARISON IS THE THEIF OF JOY.

I tend to compare myself to others A LOT. In every area of my life - being a wife, mom, friend, looks, business.. But I remember that God created me specifically to fulfill those specific rolls only the way that I can. Not anyone else. Only me.

A friend shared this quote with me tonight and I loved it so much so I'm going to share it with you all! Don't compare yourself. Don't get lost in the shuffle. Take care of yourself. Make yourself a priority. Don't let your life sweep you away in all the craziness of everyday life. Love yourself enough to care for yourself.

Stay strong.
