This post is for the "That’s what she said” link up with Mrs. AOK. Go check her out and link up!
I love this quote because I'm a big fan of Sophia Amoruso. She started Nasty Gal from home with no money and now she’s a millionaire. Talk about a rags to riches story. The book #GIRLBOSS flew off the shelves and got everyone quoting Sophia as much as the movie Mean Girls.
The great thing about this particular quote is it can be applied to so many aspects of our lives i.e. work, home and personal. How many times do we look at what somebody else has and immediately start comparing ourselves to them and begin to look down on what we have. I know I’ve been guilty of it.
We're constantly obsessing over whose body is nicer than ours, whose house is bigger, whose car is newer and who has the better-behaved kids. There’s always at least one girl with a killer wardrobe we all covet!
The truth of the matter is everyone has something about their own lives they wish they could change so while we’re wasting precious time envying someone else’s life why not create a life we love to live?
It’s cool to be inspired by other people. Hell who doesn't have an I wish I was like Beyoncé moment or two. It’s just not good to have them all the time. Figure out what it is you’d like to have or what you want to change in your life then set small goals, do something each and every day to reach those goals. Eventually you’ll love your life so much you'll wonder why you ever compared yourself to anyone at all.
