Woman-to-Woman Encouragement

I found this little snippet many years ago and recently ran across it again. I really needed to read this over and over today! Today has been a rough day for me and I'm really working on seeing the positive, but some days are easier than others. Today was NOT an easy day. Nothing specific happened, it was just one of those days where you wonder what is around the bend. I know that God has a plan for me, but at the moment I'm not sure what it is. I'm seeking his guidance and know that it is just around the corner. I, along with Rob, am just putting our questions in God's hands and knowing that things will work out the way they need to. (This doesn't mean that I haven't had a few mental breakdowns though, ha)

Anyway, I hope this little snippet speaks to you as it does to me:

Someone will always be smarter. Their house will be bigger. They will drive a better car. Their children will do better in school. And their partners will fix more things around the house. So let it go and love you and your circumstances. Think about it. The prettiest woman in the world can have sorrow in her heart. And the most highly favored woman on our job may be unable to have children. The richest woman you know - she has the car, the house, the clothes - might be heartbreakingly lonely. So, love you. Love who you are right now. Tell yourself, "I am too blessed to be stressed." To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world.
