We are ending the month with a biggie! …Self comparison.  It’s easy to believe that “everyone else” has the better life on social media with filters, professional photos, etc.  We forget that what people post is a choice and often curated.   The reality could be that their life is falling apart and you would never know.  If certain emotions come up for us when we see other people or interact with them, this is a moment to say “Stop!” in our minds.  Where is this coming from?  How is it affecting me?

The challenge this week is to reflect on these moments and bring it back to yourself.  What do you want to improve in your own life and how can you get there? For example, maybe you see your friend has a clean house all the time and find out she has someone to clean it.  But it’s not because she’s “lucky” or “privileged.” Maybe it’s because she’s had to work every weekend for the past 6 months.  The grass is not greener on the other side.  Sometimes you learn the green is different colors, burnt, dead, or astro turf!
