Comparing oneself to others is like driving down a road trying to follow a map from another city. ~ Ellen Grace O’Brian
I have long compared myself to others. Almost automatically. Judging myself based on that comparison. I haven’t liked that I keep doing it, yet it still happens. Not so much anymore, thank God!, but, still, more than I’d like!
It’s so easy to focus on what “needs fixing” isn’t it? And comparison gives me a never ending source of shoulds and oughtas. But it doesn’t make me happy & I think that’s one of God’s desires for me – to be happy, to be joyful, to love being me and spreading the love.
Following my whispers and nudges, I’m launching Love Being You. Finally. (I’ve had the domain name for at least five years, not able to give it up when it came time to renew!)
But last week, I had some bolts of clarity, some answered prayers. Use that domain name. Shake things up. Let go of what’s no longer working. Try something new….Love being you.
When I realized the name may have been a not-so-subtle reminder of my instructions from God. To remind myself of how I want to be, I felt almost giddy! I can tap into those times where I was really okay with myself. If I amped that up to LOVING being me, loving my life, what might change for me? Probably lots! So, here I go on this new adventure.
