Brene Brown has really been a huge help to me this year as I have gone through a 180 transformation. I could read this quote more than once a day to remind me to stop making comparisons to other people and also to myself. It's a great phone wallpaper!
We make comparisons starting off the first few hours of the day sitting on the train scrolling through Instagram, throughout the day when a random thought comes to mind about the dream apartment you wish you had, and then at the end of the day at the gym where naturally you see people "you think" are more fit than you, and then internalize this. All of this is such negative energy! I am not saying to eliminate all your goals and things that you want to work for to achieve, but let's accept that when you are more content just being you, your habits will naturally become more healthy.
If you can relate to any of this, I feel like there is a strong need for more social media and blogging to NOT be an escape to look at all the drool worthy things that you wish you had in life and just be a place to share images, experiences and motivations that lift you up and make you able to relate more to your Instagram feed.
We all do it! And to some degree, I know that I will never be able to eliminate comparisons and jealousy from my life. But, little reminders, every single day of how authentic you are will help you live a healthy, balanced, life, free of judgments.
If this sounds good to you, I am going to be completely re-vamping Downtown Domestic over the course of the year. Changing the name of the blog, sharing a little bit of my story, and in this, I hope to seriously change your relationship with your mind and body and get rid of that mini version of yourself in your head "mr. or mis. ego" that pushes unrealistic expectations on you.
