I follow Makosi on Instagram for inspirational purposes because I am addicted to living a healthy lifestyle. She posts photos of her runs, yoga, church service messages, outfit of the day you name it but mostly her workout and that’s why I can never get enough of her. The other day she posted the above photo with a caption that read;
“Comparison is the thief of joy, Love your life. Focus on the positives and realise that everyone puts their best foot forward on social media…”
She could not have said it any better. I am very guilty of going through Instagram and wowing and liking photos at the same time wishing I had a body, a house, a relationship, shoes, a smile, you name it that I would have seen while scrolling through different accounts. By the time I am through with all that trust me most times I am left feeling miserable and questioning why my life isn’t as fabulous as everyone else’s. But the truth of the matter is people rarely ever showcase the troubles they are going through. They make sure that you see the positive aspects and that’s not a bad thing really, what is bad is wishing your life was like that without actually realising yours is just as fabulous the way it is. There is nothing wrong with wanting the finer things in life but we should not make what we see on the internet deceive us because there is clearly more to it than what meets the eye.
This week I promise to start off my week on a positive note and stop comparing my life to people that I don’t even know and be easy on myself. This life is too short to not celebrate the goodness happening in your own life.
Have a lovely Sunday and a smashing week ahead and never forget how great your life is; it could be worse but here you are living it to the fullest!
