Overcoming Comparison | Life of Something Minted

With the last blog post being about tips for finding your dream dress, I couldn't help but think about what too often comes with that feeling -comparison. You fell in love with the dress on an all too perfect, more than likely photoshopped model in your favorite bridal magazine and once you put it on, well...it's different. I want you to ditch the image of the model and take in what you see in the mirror as your first impression. I want you to know one dress does not define beauty and once fitted to you, it'll be worn in the most lovely way.

Comparison is something we all face, whether as a bride, mama, or a wedding photographer. In a world of seemingly perfect Instagram lives where success is measured through likes rather than love, holding true to ourselves is harder than ever.

My challenge to you is to free yourself of your comparison causers! Whether it's "un-following" people that make you feel that you aren't good enough, or simply taking a break from your newsfeed to focus on your own work, style & growth. Just as you set goals, start setting boundaries!

I want to encourage you to join other soul-boosting people to cheer them along in their journeys. Create community rather than competition. Then the only comparison you will have is which goals you've accomplished and which are still to be reached.
