Friday Frills




Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. 
It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. 
It just feeds your contempt, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. 

The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. 
Everyone has their own unique journey. 
A path that’s right for someone else won’t necessarily be a path that’s right for you. 
And that’s okay. Your journey isn’t right or wrong, or good or bad. 
It’s just different. 

Your life isn’t meant to look like anyone else’s because you aren’t like anyone else. 
You’re a person all your own with a unique set of goals, obstacles, dreams, and needs. 
So stop comparing, and start living. 
You may not have ended up where you intended to go.

But trust, for once, that you have ended up where you needed to be. 
Trust that you are in the right place at the right time. 
Trust that your life is enough. 
Trust that you are enough.

ok 1. that dress is AH-MAH-ZING! i mean seriously just gorgeous.. the color.. the pleats! just beautiful

and

2. OMGGGG the quote just like SPOKE to my soul!! this is exactly how i feel. it's so easy to IMAGINE what other people are going through but you don't know anything because you're not in their shoes!!! and if you spend all your time comparing how do you live/enjoy your own life?

Lilli said...

Hi Sam, these words are so true and I agree with them. Is always easy to say than to do but I do believe happiness starts when you are just enough for you, stopping comparing yourself with others and being satiesfied with your person, not necessarily with what you have around, is more an inner thing. And yes, everyone is different, with his/her own story, life, troubles and drama. Once you accept it, your life is already enough. Happy Fri dear, hope you are enjoying the long weekend, it is also here!:) Kisses! xo
