Journey Forward {10}


Linking up with Chelsea from Life is a Sunset today for her Journey Forward.

Today's journey is about comparing yourself to people... 
Dear Chelsea; Today was especially hard for me to do this Journey Forward. I look forward to Thursday's to see what you come up with and how everyone responds, but today mine's a little backwards.

Ladies, Gentleman, Scholars, and Scoundrels..... 
I don't compare myself to any of you. 
I hate to be that person that says this, but it's the truth. 
I'd be lying if I said I wanted to have lovely blonde hair, or the newest iphone, and I only knew this because I was comparing myself to someone. 
That's just not the case! I do like blonde hair, but the girls that rock it can keep on rocking it! I do think iphone's are cool, but I'm not about to trade in my blackberry because the guy at starbucks has one and it made me want one. 
I like me, the way I am, and with the things I have. I have them because I like them, and I don't really care if other people like what I have. Truth of the matter is.... You just do you, and I'll be over here doin me hahah! 

Keep on rockin in the free world dudes! 

<3 Jessica

  1. All sorts of kudos to you for not comparing yourself to other people. I try to avoid it...but I definitely have a tendency to hold my accomplishments up against other people's. Go you for being yourself and being totally happy with it!

  4. I need to take a better approach towards things like this Jessica. I am glad you don't compare yourself to others because I have a horrible tendency to do it. But you are right, appreciate yourself for who you are.

  5. I try to avoid comparison so much, it's the times I fall into it that I am miserable and so down. But, when I allow myself to be myself and shine, that is when I am happiest. It can get hard with blogs as everyone thinks you should be posting about trends or wearing the latest fashions, but that just isn't me. I try to just ignore that and stay myself. We are special as we are & we have to believe in that!! No more comparing for me ;) Have a super weekend love! xx

    1. The fear of failure is greater than failure itself so don't stop trying!
