    Sister to Sister Encouragement

    So often, we look at others and compare ourselves to them. And often, we come up short. We look and say, "Oh she's 25 and she's done this, this, this and this. Or we watch people who "have it all together" and we begin to get down on ourselves. We find any number of ways to compare ourselves to the next sister - and come up short....STOP!
    There's a saying that the grass is always greener on the other side.....Well, their water bill is higher too. And guess what? You can have green grass also IF you seed, water and fertilize your lawn. You can't have what somebody else has if you're not willing to go through what they went through. But, that's another matter. Stop comparing yourself to others. Love YOU!!!!

    Each of us has our own thorns. Be it weight, single-parenting, job dissatisfaction, husband problems, financial distress, children woes, over-worked/underpaid issues, loneliness, confusion, self-doubt, etc. You've got to love you, and if you can't do that right now, At least quit comparing yourself to others, because you don't know what they are going through. Someone will always be prettier. They will always be smarter. Their house will be bigger. They will drive a better car. Their children will do better in school. And their husband will fix more things around the house.

    So let it go, and love you and your circumstances. Think about it. The prettiest sister in the world can have anger all up in her heart. And the most highly favored sister on your job may be unable to have children. And the richest sister you know - she's got the car, the house, the clothes - might be lonely. So, again, love you. Love who you are right now.
    yeah, yeah, yeah...

    If quizzes are "quizical"...What are tests?

          Well said my friend. It's amazing how such an easy concept is difficult to understand for many people. We get caught up in the "ego-driven" world and are never happy. I am finally accepting and loving myself, flaws and all. Reading your post just confirms it. Thanks. :)
