  1. Hi Karen,
    Thanks for this wonderful post.
    The tendency to always want to compare ourselves with others is part of the human nature, but it is not a healthy practice. When we compare ourselves to others, we will either feel we are better or worse than them.
    Like you suggested, it is important for us to develop the mindset of not comparing ourselves with others, because we all have unique journey. Unhealthy comparisons destroys personal confidence.
    Thanks for sharing

    I still find myself competing with others, even though I’m a lot more confident in myself than I used to be. I get impatient and see someone who is years ahead of me and think that’s where I should be too. Definitely something to work on. 🙂

    A big problem with life is if you do sit ‘outside of the box’ and don’t do as others do you are criticized and often seemingly working against everything and everyone that should celebrate your uniqueness. We are forced to conform by the restrictions society sets for us.

    Enjoy the journey!

    I think this is an area that definitely needs high awareness and would be an ongoing work in progress. It would be easy to tell yourself some of the things you want in life are your original idea not influenced by media or anyone else’s progress. However, the psychology of marketing is so tricky before you know it your thoughts have been guided in directions before you realize it. This is a powerful share much food for thought. Easy to become accustomed to going along just to get along.

    Hi Karen. Once a month we have fast and testimony meeting. Anyone who feels like it can bear testimony and talk about how the gospel has affected their life.

    One our members commented God loves us, and no matter what we do He will not love us any more or any less than He ever has. I’ve really grabbed hold of that. It doesn’t mean He loves and accepts our bad behavior, but He always loves us and is waiting for us to come to Him. With that kind of love, how can we feel unworthy?

    I love all your quotes and thoughts on this blog. Thanks so much.
