It seems to be a particularly female affliction, this comparing of ourselves to our friends, to ideals, to impossible standards. Lost Bumblebee and Teddy Roosevelt have it right, though. Comparison really can be a thief of joy.
So here's a friendly reminder you can print out and tape to the mirror, your closet doors, or your best friend's face. Or, less tape required, set it as your computer or phone wallpaper/screensaver. I especially like the flower in the middle of the "o."
If you like printables, Lost Bumblebee is a treasure trove - her constant stream of creativity astounds me.
I hope you're week is ending on a joyful note, folks. Remember:
“You is kind. You is smart. You is important.”
