Hello Lovelies. I recently read an amazing article on Huffington Post on comparison, entitled “Confronting the Deep Middle“. Wow, did it strike a cord with me! The article challenges us women to start talking more honestly about what we confront in midlife and to stop being secretive. Yes, I truly believe that you’re never stuck but that doesn’t mean the path is always easy and that we don’t struggle! So given this is a blog primarily geared toward midlife, I thought I’d discuss honestly about a midlife pitfall that many of us struggle with.
Sheesh, it’s everywhere without us even realizing it! Someone brilliant once pointed out , “Comparison is the thief of joy.” How’s that for nailing it? I’ve always prided myself on avoiding this little thief. When I ran my company, I refused to allow myself or my employees compare us to the competition. I just didn’t go there and adopted an abundance mindset. In other words, my mindset was that if our competitors did well, so would we.
