14. Stop comparing yourself to others

14. Stop comparing yourself to others

You know that song by Christian French that goes “Thank God what I wanted back then isn’t what I have now?”

When Tony (my fiance) and I were looking for our first home last spring, my entire Facebook feed was FULL of people buying beautiful homes. We had all of our ducks in a row, visited 30+ homes, got denied on 3 offers (over-asking, mind you), and left feeling broken-hearted that what got a person a starter home in 2019 did not, in fact, apply to the housing market in 2022.

All I could dream about last year was finding the perfect place. I look back now and sing this Christian French tune with deeper gratitude that I did not get what I thought I wanted.

Today’s episode is for those of you who have ever dreamed of how amazing it would be to try living in someone else’s shoes.

The grass is greener where you water it.
