Words of Wisdom
It’s easy to get caught up in the comparison game in today’s society. With social media at an all time high, and all of us (yours truly, included) glued to our phones and “scrolling” constantly, the thought of jealousy and “she’s so lucky” isn’t so uncommon.
Though, I’d venture to say that nine times out of 10, that “luck” wasn’t just handed to them. More often than not, that luck was worked (hard) for and earned and well deserved.
For starters, Instagram and social media, in general, is a highlight reel of one’s life. Luckily, it seems that it’s all moving into a more “real” direction, which I couldn’t be more thrilled about, but curated photos and feeds are still very prevalent, and it’s not a bad thing! Those beautiful photos and feeds are fun to look at and can be totally inspiring.
However, when you find yourself scrolling and see lots of “perfection,” just know that that photo is simply a moment in time, one moment out of all the moments that make up someone’s life.
