I’ve been apart of an amazing MLM company for some time now and I find it easy to get caught up in the stir of social media up level updates. Most days I am like good for them and then somedays I am sitting there wondering what I am doing wrong to not be rapidly advancing and sharing as much as them.
The reality is that this applies to my life as a mother as well. Most days I think I am doing an amazing job and that I am the most loving mother. Then the comparison beast comes in. I see friends taking their kids here, going on a family trip there, teaching them this, feeding them that. Then I sob like a baby and criticize myself for being a terrible mom.
I mean, WHAT…like two seconds ago I was thinking I was killin’ this motherhood gig.
This is where a little self love and self care can come into save the day. When I find myself beginning to compare myself to people I know it is time to put my phone away and reconnect with life. To go stare at a tree, meditate and breathe in nature. To hear MY inner guidance. I have to reconnect to my undying faith of how successful I want to be as a human, a mother, a world changer, and MLM business woman.
If you find yourself getting frustrated because you didn’t get somewhere as quickly or as well as “Sally”, thank yourself. You have your own way. Stop, breathe and let it go. Thank God you didn’t because we need it YOUR way. We literally need you on this earth doing life the way you do it. You are going to be that someone one day (or already are) that someone just beginning on their journey says, “I want to be where she is”.
I want to remind and encourage you that YOU ARE DOING THE DAMN THING and to keep going through the work. Resistance is the number one thing that holds us back from our deepest desires. Comparison is a form of it. Consistent effort can beat resistance down.
Dig in and show up for YOUR life.
Life would be boring if we were all the same or did it the same way.
Your journey of failures can someones else’s dream of success.
Shine bright and BE YOU.
