Every time an Internet browser opens it’s an emotional ride that can leave you reeling from all the pins you want recreate, the latest workout you want to try, or the friend you want to trade lives with. With every scroll comes a constant reminder that someone else’s life seems more fabulous, more successful, more fulfilling than yours. Just thinking about all the comparisons can provoke a mild panic attack leaving you reaching for the nearest Xanax ™.
The aforementioned dramatization of emotions got me thinking. All these people whose posts leave me feeling like my life changing diapers and wiping noses is menial, have also brought so much joy to me. Each one of them, unique and special, has inspired me in little, and very big ways. To tell you the truth, sadly, most of them don’t even know it.
So, my #GratitudeChallenge, is to tag someone you are grateful for, and list a few words describing how they’ve inspired you. Let’s kill the sorrows of social media comparison by recognizing those who have lit a fire in our hearts. Hopefully, this post will fill you with joy and love that you can pass on to someone who does the same for you. Happy Thanksgiving, my friends!
P.S. Who are you grateful for and how have they inspired you? Give them some love, tag them in this post, and tell them how they’ve inspired you. #GratitudeChallenge
