Happy Monday! So recently I have had a few friends reveal to me that when good things happen to other people, they feel jealous and inadequate. They start to question "why her" ? Right? I found myself doing it the other day when a friend of mine posted her new beautiful engagament ring on Facebook (and trust me, I don't even WANT to get married). Social media has made keeping up with the Jones a national sport that goes on 24/7. It is difficult to see everyone's perfect life on Facebook especially in times of difficulty.
So I am here to give you two simple lessons that I have learned in this lifetime:
1) Things are rarely as they appear; especially on Facebook. Resist the urge to compare yourself to anyone else. You have no idea what is really going on for them or what their path is. Furthermore, accept that your path is perfect and everything is happening exactly as it should at the exact right time
2). Practice being happy for your friends. It is a generous thing to do and it will feel good. At first it might feel inauthentic. If jealousy shows up, acknowledge that and repeat "this says nothing about me and my path" and then be happy for them. It will pay off, I promise!!!!
I would love to hear how this goes for you! Xo
The one constant in life is change. How we navigate that change is who we are. Creating sustainable change is a more deliberate action and gives us the life we want. This is what my practice and my life mission is all about. All of my life experiences, work history and spiritual journey have lead me to this path - to help others create transformation in their lives and live lives that they love.
