It is human nature to compare ourselves with the people around us. 🤔
It can be positive if we use this to motivate us to do better and improve our lives. However if we compare ourselves constantly to others it can be very destructive and toxic.😌
Being stuck with envious feelings can ruin your life. There are ways to control envy and not to feel bad about other people’s perfect lives.
👉 Appreciate what you have. If you are grateful for your blessings, there is no room in your heart to be jealous of other people 👉 Realize that what you have isn’t a measure of who you are as a person.. Some people have a luxurious lifestyle and are not happy; some people have less but are grateful for their blessings 👉 Do not compare your worst. You may feel that life is not fair, as you see only negativity in yours; but you don’t know the struggles other people have to keep up with their lifestyle, their life might not be as perfect as you think 👉 Realize that you don’t always need what you want. Sometimes we believe that we will only be happy if we have something that we want. We don’t realize that even without these things we can be perfectly happy. 👉 Practice gratitude. If you are grateful for life’s blessings, then there is nothing in this world can make you feel less of yourself. You know that you are here with a purpose and you don’t need to compete with other people to feel good about yourself.
Remember that the only person you should be greater than is YOURSELF.🔥
I never really thought about it this way. For any of us to make peace with and respect the individuality of the others is not possible if we do not accept and make peace with own individuality … and our individual struggles and triumphs.
We always think of ourselves as being so small in the grand scheme of things…just one tiny drop in the ocean. 😎
All of our experiences, travels we do, people we meet, are in our hearts and souls.
We carry our world inside of us, each and every one of us does, making us all like the entire ocean in a drop.🔥🔥
We live in a changing, dynamic world of constant evolution but sometimes, although we have transformed and had the strength to change, we don’t accept it for whatever reason: maybe fear, shame, guilt …
🦋 Be patient. All good things come with time, and with patience come great rewards.
🦋 Be open to change. Be willing to be transformed. Without change, nothing beautiful would happen. You have to give up who you are to become who you might be.
🦋 Be light and free. Have some fun. Look for joy, happiness, and love in daily life.
🦋 Be spontaneous. Fly forward with confidence and have the courage to seize new opportunities.
🦋 Be in the moment. Don’t look over the past. The present moment is a gift for us to enjoy, be happy.
Be kind to yourself during times of transition, and like the butterfly, you will experience the magnificence of being who you are!

Gratitude is our emotion that relates to our ability to feel and express thankfulness and appreciation. 😍 Our days rarely go according to plan or without unexpected challenges. Would you agree? 😉
🔹 Gratitude can motivate behaviors that ultimately lead to self-improvement and positive change. 🔹 Gratitude has been linked with success and achievement in multiple life domain 🔹 Gratitude also inspires us to perform kind acts for others. 🔹 Gratitude motivates us not only to improve our own life but also the circumstances of the people around us.
Helen Keller was blind and mute after an illness at the age of nineteen months. She proved that attitude, and a refusal to accept life in “the shadows of the prison-house,” changes insurmountable challenges into awe-inspiring achievement.
She was the first deaf-blind person to earn a bachelor of arts degree. She remained hopeful and always believed in others and in the power of communication.
No matter how long your list of negative things gets, the positive always wins. When you are in a situation when you feel like you are angry, sad, unhappy, lost, etc. try and think about all the good things in your life, they will definitely outweigh all the negative emotions.
Some of us struggle with being too concerned about what others think about us. If you want to make a change in your life, you need permission from anyone. Believe in yourself and see what the universe has for you.
Yesterday I listened to Les Brown, I saw him live a few years ago and I still love listening to his speech. This is why today I made this post.
Happiness is a skill you can learn and practice the rest of your life. It is very easy to be influenced by your emotions and very hard to calm yourself if you feel overwhelmed or out of control of a situation. 😎
👉 Doing some meditation regularly will help you during stressful time. 👉 Stop filling your head with angry images or stories about the cause and who is to blame for your unwanted pain. 👉 Instead of walking away to cool off, face the stress and visualize a calming image or situation 👉 If you are in a situation where you have a stranger in front of you, instead of retaliating impulsively and getting into a heated argument, remember that you can either leave this unstable mess as it is or you can add more fuel to the fire and make it bigger than it already is. Be the clever person in that situation. I know easy to say when you want to strangle them 😂
Remember one thing You have the power to make a choice. Never, ever give that power away. Don’t waste your precious energy on things that accomplish absolutely nothing. 💪😎
“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.” Denis Waitley
