Aside

Comparison

Audio Version of Every Day Hope Message:

Satisfaction begins when comparison ends. While imagining ourselves in a different life is tempting, it erodes the innate peace that lies within us. It detracts from the beauty of our own journey.

To look at life through the eyes of another changes the prism and paradigm of our own uniqueness. It’s attempting to duplicate something that’s simply not duplicatable – the story of an individual. No two stories are the same and that’s part of life’s mysterious beauty.

The desire to live someone else’s seemingly easier path denies the virtue of our own experience. Comparison turns others into rivals and it robs us of contentment.

Embrace the patchwork quilt of existence with its natural highs and lows. Find and share the peace that comes from being authentic and living your distinct purpose.
