Mostly I’m not very much about quotes n stuff but this one really got to me:
“The reason why we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind the scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel.” – Steven Furtick
And that’s the thing – all the time isn’t it? I love blogs n social media but so many times my heart and self esteem plummets after taking a round on the net. I want to do and be better all the time. It is never enough. Never ever enough.
I had a fantastic day today. Slept like a baby, went skiing in perfect weather, petted my cat, had some candy, sat in the sun outside my lovely cottage, watched a couple of episodes of The Flash with my kids and so much more. And now in my sofa writing this I also took a tour on the net and my joy got split in half. I see all the other places I’ve could have gone, the bodies I could get, the style that is even grander somewhere else. Always someones elses highlight reel…
And the thing is I’m very glad and thankful for my life. But these things are messing with my head. I don’t like it.
