Losing Our Identity

2 Corinthians 10:12 We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise. One of the hardest things to do when you are unhappy, bored or disouraged is to not compare your life with someone else's. Some have called it a comparison trap. Oftentimes when we are idle or restless in our own lives, we seem to notice what is going on and into the lives of others. When this happens we lose our own identity. It's not wise to compare yourself to another person or your life to their life.  Don't fall into the trap of comparing yourself to others. You are exactly the way you are supposed to be. Don't let the weakness in you affect the greatness in you. You have been given all that you need to be the success that God desires for you. Settle down and settle in to that best version of you that we all want to see. You are amazing!

Spread Christmas Cheer

This is one of my favorite lines from the movie "Elf".  Usually the person that makes the most noise is the one that is noticed. Today there are many people singing loudly but few that seem to be using their voices to spread cheer.
As we draw closer to Christmas, I encourage you to share some love and kindness and sprinkle in some positive and affirming comments too. Use your social networks to make people happy rather than cause them to become critical. This is the time of year to be cheerful!
So go ahead, jump into a chorus of your favorite carol and bake some Christmas Cookies! Call a friend just to say hi. Share a cup of joe and some memories with someone you haven't seen in a while. Sing loud for all to hear! Spread some Christmas cheer!
