You are an original, one-of-a kind and there will never ever be another person like you! 

That statement resonates with me. You see I was one of those persons who compared myself to everyone else: “If only I had hair like her,” “if only I could speak as well as she does,” “if only . . . ”  And, when I compared myself to “her,” guess what happened?  She won!  I lost!!  Every single time!!   And, I don’t know about you, but I hate losing!! 

It was time for a mindset change!!

I read the book, “You Are a Badass” by Jenn Sincero, and she address this very subject, which makes me think I am not the only one who compares myself to others, right?  She says, can you imagine Led Zeppelin comparing itself to Mozart?  Or Marilyn Monroe comparing herself to Kate Moss?  Wouldn’t that have been tragic?! These icons saw themselves as originals, unique and one of a kind, and they embraced themselves and by doing so they shone their light for the world to see!  I cannot imagine a world without Marilyn Monroe, whose legacy lives on.

So the moral of this blog is that you are more than enough. You are beautiful just the way you are, and so nix the urge to compare yourself to others.

Shine your own light, and by doing so you let others shine their own light as well!
Can you?
