Motivational Monday

I have been reading a lot lately about online envy. You know, "the grass is greener on the other side" syndrome. People getting mad because all bloggers and pinners do is talk about how great their lives are. I've even been accused of being too perky and too happy. Listen up people, I'm gonna let you in on a little secret here. 

1. My blog is not my diary. It is a way to spread a little joy and sunshine. I do share a lot of private sad info, but for the most part, you just won't see a ton into my private life and I believe that is absolutely okay. This is my blog. 

2. My pins are there to make me happy and to inspire me to create. If they make you smile too, than super. 

Now, you may ask, where is the motivation? Well, here it is and this isn't a secret, you can actually tell everyone this...Quit comparing yourself to everyone else. Quit thinking someone has it better than you. You are pretty damn awesome just on your own. 

Everyone will have problems, everyone will have ups and downs. Don't ridicule the person for not wanting to share. Allow them to focus on the positive in their life. You should be doing that too! We will all have major disappoints in our lives. We all we have craptastic days. It's called life and it can be a bitch sometimes, but if we focus on what is good in our lives, we won't have to look over the fence and compare. 

Be happy with you!

Very well said...but on the other side of the coin be aware that if someone does post negative things occasionally it is helpful to show your support even if just a simple *hug*

Here, here! Great blog, love! Comparison is the thief of joy anyway, so it's best to be yourself, and that's good enough!

I was going to use that same quote as Lisa, "Comparison is the thief of joy" because I really believe that one. And I'm also 100% in favor of one's blog, pins, FB page, tumblr, etc. being what they want it to be. If someone doesn't like it, then they can "change the channel" as we used to say.
