There is so much competition and comparison in our lives. We look at people's clothes, trips, money, physical appearance, talents, jobs, and the lists go on and on. It's easy to be unsatisfied with what we have and want more, and even on occasion want other people's lives... For example, I love new clothes. What girl doesn't?! I'm the first to say I love looking at fashion blogs and see what fun outfits people are wearing and coming up with. But it made me realize something. Over Thanksgiving I was talking to my sister about what we wanted for Christmas. During the conversation, I kind of realized that even if I got clothes for Christmas, I was still going to want the "new" thing a couple weeks later. There is always going to be something newer and better that I see someone wearing and wish I had it. We can never be satisfied with what we have... Or maybe I'm the only one! And don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with getting new clothes [I still got some for Christmas] but I just think in general my thought-process with the whole thing has gone way overboard and I need to tone it back to being happy with what I have. While it's always fun to look, I'm happy with the things :)
There is a difference with being unsatisfied with our lives and wanting to improve, to grow and to learn - which we should all be trying to do. No one is perfect. But each person is beautiful and unique in their own way. We should all take a line from Mr. Bruno Mars and realize "you are amazing, just the way you are" (no matter how cheesy it may sound).
