“Two things prevent us from happiness; living in the past and observing others.”
When I saw this quote, the ending rang through my head; it is so true. When you observe others and compare your life to theirs it causes nothing but unhappiness.
I find myself comparing my life to everyone around me, and I always feel one of two things: either jealousy or guilt.
Do you ever have those days that things just can’t seem to go your way? You’re already not having the best day and then you walk into your kitchen to see a waterfall of sewage water coming from your overflowing sink and quickly flooding the floor… well, that was my day yesterday.
Thanks, universe! I can always count on you to throw a few million curve balls my way.
This is a gazillion miles outside my comfort zone, and I have the biggest butterflies ever, but I think that that is exactly why I need to start.
