Throughout most of my life, I’ve compared myself to others. I compared myself playing soccer, compared myself in a bathing suit, compared myself as a mom. And most of the time, I came up short. Ok, well, all the time. There was always someone better and ‘more than’ me. ✨
I’ve worked really hard to move past that mindset. Because comparison is such a part of our culture, it can be difficult to remove it from our thinking. It shows up everywhere, since helping people realize how ‘less than’ they are, helps marketers sell products to fix that!
But here’s the thing I’ve come to understand: I can’t be ‘less than’. I am a creation of the Divine, a unique expression come to experience life on Earth as ME. Not as the person I’m oggling. Not in the way they’re experiencing their life. God wanted to show up as me, just as God wanted to show up as you. And those expressions are not meant to be the same, nor compared. ✨
The more I’ve focused on the uniqueness of me, the more my self worth has risen. The more self-love I’ve unconditionally given myself, the more I’ve felt good about myself no matter what. ✨
I still fall into the comparison trap at times. But those times occur fewer and farther between. I like myself. I like myself a lot. And my liking myself doesn't take away from you or from you liking yourself. I’m not ‘more than’, I just AM. ✨
You’re fabulous, and you don’t need to be like anyone else. You’re here to be YOU.
For today at least, can you lay comparison down...just set it aside...yup, like that...and focus on how wonderful you are? YOU, just as you are, touch the lives of others in a unique way. Ain’t no one else can do THAT. ✨
So, how will you uniquely express being YOU today? What will you do today as the Divine creation you are?
