  1. Amen! I’m in the midst of a literal declutter as we prepare to move into a smaller place, and have been chagrined at all the “stuff” we acquired–much of it because it was the latest popular whatever and not because it really enriched our lives in any way. With every trip to the dump/recycling/consignment/Salvation Army, I feel lighter and less encumbered–and aim to stay that way! Thanks for the affirmation.

  2. I like the saying “taking things like a grain of salt”. I equate this to the idea of comparing. I think all of us do it, but it’s usually better to do it on a surface level only and not take things too seriously. Ofcourse, it’s always easier said than done. 🙂

    I have learned this the hard way. Comparing yourself or your life with others will never do you any good. It needs to stop so you can be your own person!

  4. I agree that decluttering and simplifying my life will help. Every time I clean out a drawer, a closet – anywhere really, I feel a weight lifted from my shoulders.

    I never compare myself to anyone because most of the time it makes people feel bad about themselves and I don’t like that.

    That is so true. We compare ourselves to others and whine about what we don’t have when we could be happy with ourselves and what we do have. You are right on the money with this post!
