Comparison is the thief of joy !

Hey Lovely Mamas !

Hope you all are enjoying a great weekend !

I’ve some questions on my mind , Do you compare your children with other kids ? Do you compare your small business with others ? Do you compare your life with others ? Do you compare your blog with others? Do you compare yourself to others ?

Most of the time we are comparing ourselves to things we see on other people’s social media. But guess what? We are seeing everyone’s highlight reel and comparing it to our everyday reality. Comparison is easy, tempting, and available with social media we have at our fingertips . But life is not meant to be compared, it’s meant to be enjoyed. Comparison is the thief of joy .

Remember, Your kids are unique,they have different skills,talents,knowledge Each one is blessed differently . God has created  each one of us with unique skills and inner power . Stop comparing your children with others . Kids may feel insecure and comparison develops inferior complex and jealousy among children . Encourage them to be Unique .

Are you focusing on your weaknesses and putting yourself down? It’s easy to doubt yourself and feel that I’m nothing special. Negative self-talk generates negative energy. Even if you don’t ever say out loud what you think about yourself, people can sense it on an energetic level. Therefore, the negative self-talk will keep your dreams out of reach, hence blocking your success.Comparison is the dream killer .

Comparing ourselves to others and trying to live up to others expectations, is a thief of dreams. Every person’s journey is his and hers alone to decide what that looks like. Do what makes you happy and what makes your heart sing and invest in the discovery of what you uniquely bring to the world.

Let’s let go of the comparing and don’t let ourselves get caught in the trap of comparison. Why compare yourself to someone when you were uniquely created?Go be YOU!

Your story is unique & different and not worthy of comparison . Don’t compare your chapter one to someone else’s chapter 30 . Do you find that you compare your WORST with other’s BEST on social media? DON’T DO IT.  We all have flaws, but that’s not usually what we see online. People like to show their best. Focus on the awesome parts about you… “the good angles” … and just compare yourself only to the girl you were yesterday. That’s your competition. 

“Stop comparing yourself.” Do not compare yourself to others my friends. We are all on different journeys, we all have different histories. In this world, there is a huge tendency to compare ourselves to others. Let’s spend less time comparing ourselves to others and being jealous of what we think we lack and spend more time being grateful for what we have, especially during this wonderful holiday season. You are all amazing, you are all beautiful, you are all wonderful. Focus on you, focus on your family and spend more time bringing yourself up and not down. We are all here to learn from one another. We’re all unique, which means we bring something different to the table just by being ourselves. Let’s enjoy all that uniqueness… in yourself AND in others. Happy Saturday my friends! 

Love Always , Devi

 

How to Celebrate Yourself ?

Good Morning loves, Happy Friday!!!

Today is 1st of December . This is the beginning of new month,new things.. I would like to tell you the lessons I’ve learned last month (November 2017) November has been a great month to me in terms of my business and personal life . It gave me some clear picture of certain things which troubled me for quite sometime now . I’ve learned a very important life lesson in November . I thought lot of young mothers with toddlers need to know it. I would share it with you so that it will be of use to someone .

I’ve learned to be good to myself (learnt to celebrate myself ) . I’ve got some time off from my routine work . I used my thanksgiving holidays to pamper myself. Ha Ha Yes self – pampering is good . Treating yourself good should be the first mantra to all women/mother  . I felt so relaxed and recharged .

Self-love is self-care , Caring yourself well when you get time . Create time for yourself . I have learned to enjoy treating myself . Life is too short to not to treat yourself ! Celebrate all small win . Remember , You are worth it and deserve it !

Love your curves! Embrace your body, your spirit and all that you are! I celebrate myself…💟💟💟 Learn to embrace your natural self

Nothing makes a woman more BEAUTIFUL than the BELIEF that she already is BEAUTIFUL .

Self respect, Self-worth and self-love all start with self. Stop looking outside of yourself for your value. – Rob Liano

As most of the Women thinks, Self-Love is not only exercising  and working out and maintaining figure . A small act which keeps you relaxed and happy is self-care.Get a massage , Get a facial , Go to the local ice cream parlor and indulge in the an ice cream , Go for a new fabulous hair style ,  Go for a long walk, Meditate, Practice yoga , Eat your favorite food, Watch your favorite movie of your choice , Visit friends and family members , Dress up well and take a selfie , Play with your dog, Enjoy your ‘ME -Time’,Go  shopping ( who would say no to shopping 🙂 )  buy your favorite nail polish or lipstick , Buy handbags, Buy the new pair of shoes you have been wanting, Read your favorite book , sleep and rest well and lot more .. Do more of things makes you happy and makes your soul shine .

There is nothing wrong with a constant need to do better- to grow, try new things, to learn and wanting to become a better person. But as you grow and learn, remember to stop once in a while and tell yourself that you’ve done a good job so far. Look at how far you’ve come, don’t be too hard on yourself. Loving yourself isn’t selfish. It’s not about conceit. It’s not about thinking you’re better than someone else. It is, however, a lot more than just “accepting” yourself.

This is what I did to pamper myself .(See pictures below)

1 . I made my hair red .. New-hairdo

It’s so easy to prepare and tastes yummy  with white rice.My Mom used to prepare it . (Feeling Nostalgic ) This is a Indian menu .

3 . I had my favorite dishes in Plantain leaf . It’s a nostalgic feeling having food in plantain leaf . ( lot of childhood memories , those days during festive season we used to have festive food (feasting ) in plantain leaf .

 

I’ve learned to love me more and more now.

It’s time to close one door to open the next… Continuously moving forward with confidence and pride in who you are and where you are in your journey! …

Wishing you a new month and beautiful day filled with laughter and abundant love!!!

When was the last time you treated yourself ? What did you do? Would love to see your comments .

Love Always , Devi Venkatesan
