I may have on waaaaay too much makeup for a second grade class party 💋
Can I be real with ya for a sec? I haven’t always found this app to be inspiring. Like AT ALL. For a long time, I was jealous of the success I saw others having and I grew frustrated with my life. I felt like these beautiful women had it all figured out and I was so far behind. Like my business would never grow and my house would never be clean and my kids would never sit still and smile...my body wasn’t toned enough. My clothes too boring. My husband “not doing enough” for me. All. The. Things.
I’m not sure why I wanted to spill this sob story today, on the day of LOVE. But maybe you’re feeling the same. Frustrated with where you are and ready to give up.
This is what I’m learning (like present tense learnING) Regardless of anyone else’s success, we can succeed. Others are here to show us the way. To show us what is possible. When I reframed to think of it differently, most of the angst fell away. I also realized that the jealousy I felt helped me see what I wanted for myself: More travel, fun clothes, family time, dates, a clean minimal house, highlights... 😉
Can I give a shout out to iGstories for letting us connect in such a real uncurated way? XO
