Quote of the month – September

Continuing on last month’s theme of not comparing yourself to others, I bring you this month’s quote, which was famously stated by poet Oscar Wilde, and couldn’t be more true today than it was back when he said it:

Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.

Oscar Wilde

I love this quote so much! So often we wish we could trade lives with someone we envy. A quick scroll through someone’s Instagram feed and we instantly want their life.

To us, their life looks so much more exciting and glamorous than our own. But remember, it’s not. How someone appears to others is often not their reality. Social Media is merely the highlight reel of someone’s life.

If you find yourself wishing you could trade lives with someone else, ask yourself why. What is it about their life you love better than your own? Be honest with yourself, make a list of traits they appear to have, or the life they seem to lead.

Once you have narrowed down why you think someone else’s life is better than your own, make a plan of action containing steps you can take to create your own life that you love. Remember, you are in charge of your life – so take charge! Create a life you love <3
