Now I live my life. I no longer stay in cleaning all day to have an immaculate home. I act silly out in public with my daughter and I have no cares as to who sees. But I see my family and friends still obsessed with what others see. I have one family member that is so consumed with having a picture perfect home, wardrobe and life that she can’t enjoy it. When she has people over she gets cranky and stressed because she can’t stand anything being out of place.
I’m Happy For You addresses all this. Kay Wills Wyma addresses how obsessed we are as a society with comparisons. But there really is no getting away from it. However, you can control it. Like when I am comparing how I think to others right there I am falling into the trap. The only difference is I do not click into the drama. That’s the key. It’s ok to notice how nice someone’s home is or how put together they are. But do not let it consume you or make you feel bad about your life.
As a blogger I find it’s easy to backslide and compare myself to others. But I keep telling myself to stop. Look at my blog and just my blog. What do I see? I see a piece of work that I love. I’m proud of the designs because I have done it all on my own. I’m proud I have learned coding and have this amazing blog that truly reflects me and my personality. And I look at how far I’ve come. I went from just this little blog that no one read to this great blog that I love and others love to! And I did it all when I was focused on what I like and what made me happy. Not when I was comparing myself or my blog to others. Now I focus on each peace and think – Would I want to read this? Does this work impress me? If I answer yes then that’s all that matters.
