Comparison, a possible tool

Good day friends!

I’m sure most of us has heard the quote by Theodore Roosevelt “Comparison is the Thief of Joy“. Which basically says that if we keep looking at other’s lives, we will ultimately become unhappy of our own. I have so many views on this and I’m sure this is often a topic of discussion amongst people. We can be hypocrites on a topic which imo is Normal.

Yes, if you try to keep up with the Jones’, you will get frustrated if your expectations aren’t met. However, using the Jones’ as a tool could benefit you. Seeing the surface, the glitter, the green grass can be flipped for us to figure out how we can achieve that status on our own.

Some of the ways that we compare ourselves are by our appearance, lifestyle, cars, career choices and more. When we see others living the “Life” that we want, many start to believe that they aren’t adequate. Our bodies aren’t good enough, the nice apartment we have is no longer cool, our car isn’t great anymore, all because we are comparing it to the “ideal”.

We should take the initiative to find ways to be the “challenge”. That “ideal” becomes our goal and we can put our own spin on it. Want a healthier and better body? Get to work. Want to go on extravagant vacations every season? Get more sources of income. Keep grinding to get your dream house and luxury car.

All these things are great and achievable. However, do not Lose yourself. You have to love YOU and be proud of the accomplishments that you have made. Keep your eye on the prize and watch the benefits come!

What are your thoughts? Do you compare yourself with others? Have you made the decision to use that as a tool? Let me know ☺️

I know it may not seem like it but with God this is already done. Trust me.

Future You ♥️ (Dr. Nicole Cherise)

To overcome failure

It happens. We didn’t make the goal or missed the opportunity. For some, this is where depression can set in, this is when we “settle” or become resentful towards others.

We have to remember the late Aaliyah’s song “Try it Again”.

We have our paths and have to learn to use the obstacles as motivation. Continue to be ambitious. This isn’t easy but we are in this together friends! Let’s work!

Thanks so much for reading!

Motivational Monday edition: Rise Up!

Hi friends!

Here we are again, the weekend has gone by fast and some of us still have crust in the corner of our eyes lol. Happy Monday!

This is a quick post about the importance to Rise up.

Our Past continues to haunt us, we are continuing toxic friendships, relationships and jobs. At some point we have to say enough is enough and yearn for more. Not everyone will understand this process and that’s ok. However, this is needed in order for true Happiness to shine through.

We will see that silver lining, we will see the rainbows that come after the storms. However, it starts with us. One step at a time. One day at a time ♥️. I hope this post can lighten your load of the Monday blues!

Thank you for reading!

Motivation can come when you least expect it

Happy Sunday Friends!

As a Millennial, we are constantly in search of instant gratification. We want to do More in the world, but we are also very impatient. As the saying goes “Patience is a virtue”, we hear it go in one ear and out the other.

What I do find is that motivation can happen when you are Not looking for it. It can be from hearing a sermon from church, reading an article from your favorite blogger/writer, watching a movie or even hearing someone’s personal story. Even a conversation with a best friend may leave you inspired and he/she may never know it.

Opportunities may present themselves and sometimes we can’t see it as a passion. Truth is, there is always a lesson to learn and room for growth. Try to keep your eyes open but also your heart as well. You never know how new choices can produce wonderful benefits in your life!

Have a great, blessed day Friends!
