Comparison is the Thief of Happiness

TRUTH, y’all! I don’t know about you, but I can be going along just fine, feeling pretty good about where I am and what I’ve accomplished when WHAM - something comes across my news feed, or I get a phone call or read an article about how someone else has done it better or has... Continue Reading →

As if

"What's one thing you would do if you knew you couldn't fail?" I saw this question posted on another website this week, and it's been gnawing at me.
