If you’re here from Tiny Buddha, welcome! I hope my words helped you in some way. Thanks for taking the time to check me out here.
You’ll notice my style is a wee bit different over here. Mostly whimsical and peppered with mild obscenities. That’s just one of my needs, okay? If subscribing is calling your dear heart, the box is to the right (where my big, curly-headed face is). Questions? Comments? I’m always available at email@example.com.
And if you’re a regular reader, guess what?! You can find me and my softer side over on Tiny Buddha. Thanks for the continued support and sharing your love and light with me here.
Have a fabulous Tuesday, everyone! My chamomile tea is calling.
Peace, love and a steaming cup of Zen,
Everyone tells you not to play the comparison game.
Hell, I’ve said it before on this very blog. But I take it back.
Yeah, the comparison game can suck. It’s the fastest way I know of to experience jealousy and feel lack in your own life.
A few weeks ago, I was comparing hardcore. At first, it brought out the green-eyed monster in me (oh wait, I already have green eyes…). But then I discovered the true nature of the beast:
Examining your jealousy is a fast-track to understanding your values.
So, guys n gals – wanna play detective?
Where do you compare?
I don’t know about you, but I play the game when I’m on Facebook. It’s never intentional, but by the time I’m done browsing, I forget how much I love my life and end up wanting someone else’s.
Does this happen to you?
Do you ever get bored with your long-term goals?
Like you’re runnin’ full-speed ahead, doing the work and seeing results…and then the results start to taper off. You reach a plateau. It’s not new and exciting anymore.
So one morning you wake up and say, “Screw it.”
Maybe the next day you get back to work. Maybe you don’t. Maybe you’re bored as hell, and you’d rather count every last carpet fiber in your living room before you write another blog post.
Is that you? That’s me, too. Totally.
Because he’s wonderful, my good friend and coach listened to me gripe about how bored I’ve been. Specifically, I said I was just “going through the motions” in regards to my passions.
His response was something like, “I’m pretty sure farmers do that…”
Sly. That guy is always oh-so-subtly scooting brilliant notions into my consciousness. Like this gem:
Long-term goals/projects/passions are like farming.
