I know many of you come here for style advice or fashion inspiration, but I wanted to talk about a quote that has been stuck with me lately! “Don’t let comparison steal your joy.” So my best friend used to have this quote in her bio on Instagram, and I fell in love with it. (This was long before I started my blog) It didn’t fully resonate with me until blogging became a huge part of my life, though. I really believe people, especially fashion bloggers, struggle with this more than anyone realizes. This quote (and lots of prayer) has really lead me to choose joy and not play the comparison game that so many others fall victim to. I’m not saying I haven’t wrestled with the feeling of inadequacy (or I wouldn’t be writing this), but I keep this quote close to my heart now. It has TRULY helped me appreciate what I have accomplished instead of basing my success on others’ achievements. If I know something is going to bring me down and make me feel bad, I ignore it. No person or thing is worth your happiness and the utmost joy you have when achieving your goals! So don’t let it control you and have authority over YOUR life anymore. Choose joy!
