Over the few years many people in my life, including myself, have had absolutely horrible things happen to them. Life hasn't happened just how they'd planned. My life hasn't unfolded just how I planned. About 2 years ago I was thrown for a loop in my marriage. I've also had very close friend leave my life. Those of you that know me well know the stories...I don't need to go into them. All of that to say that I've come to a realization in the last few months. LIFE IS NOT FAIR, especially when you compare your life to a life that someone else leads. Someone else's life is always going to look better. God does not want us comparing our lives to those around us. He wants us to be content with the trails that he has chosen for us. He wants us to learn from the decision and mistakes that we've made and to become a better person because of those decision and mistakes.
Today's blessing is my yoga class. I didn't know 5 months ago when I joined a yoga studio just how much it would change my life. It has helped me become a more spiritual and introspective person. It is helping me learn how to take care of MYSELF!! It has helped me pay attention to what's going on in my life and it is helping me learn how to be happy with ME! It's helped me not to compare myself to those around me, but to find MY EDGE.
I leave with today's very long quote. It's all about being content with yourself and with who GOD MADE YOU TO BE!!
