15 Days of Happiness. . . Day 12

DAY 12:  THEY MAKE JEALOUSY WORK FOR THEM.

Many of us have heard the saying, “Comparison is the thief of joy.” And in actuality, it’s an act of violence. You may choose to believe that you are lacking, and that others are living amazingly abundant, kick-ass lives. But the truth is that you have no clue what’s going on behind their trendy Instagram posts.

Happy people know that comparison is not about the other person, but a tool to tell you what you want in life. ¬†Inspiration is the healthy byproduct of jealousy. If you’re hyper-focused on what you don’t have, you’ll never notice all the great things you do have. And if you still need to compare, do it with yourself. Aim to get happier, healthier, and stronger than you were the day before.
