If you knock on my door I'll be happy to show you around. You may find dishes in the sink, all the toilet lids up, beds not made, baskets of laundry floating around and I'll probably be in my yoga pants, cause hey ya never know I might get to do some yoga today...
You would be more than welcome to come in and sit on my couch, careful of the snack cup left between the cushions and most likely a pair of dirty socks. I would make you something yummy to drink and we would chat.
The only thing I would ask is that you don't judge my homey home.
I will in return NEVER judge your home either.
I read once in a book that we should just walk our friends to our worst room or closet at the beginning of a visit, just to be real. Wouldn't that be refreshing?
So my challenge - or let's be more positive - my opportunity for us all today is to be more authentic with our homes. Let's share the good, the bad and the ugly.
How do you Stop Comparing?
Don't hide your ugly in fact maybe even advertise it.
(When you are authentic usually others are more comfortable being authentic too!)
Accept exactly who you are and how God made you.
(See my Shape Styles to better understand your wiring.)
Compliment, compliment, compliment.
Assume the best in others and of yourself.
Don't be your own worst critic.
Find others who have the strengths you lack and vice versa,
it can take a village to run a home too!
When do you find yourself comparing yourself to others?
