Life can be overwhelming, stressful, and unfulfilled.  When we stop to think about our own lives I can agree that we all can be overly critical.  We focus on other people lives and their accomplishments that it takes away from our own.  I know this is something I work on myself on a daily basis.  It’s not that I am envious or that I want someone else’s life.  It is actually human nature, and the fact is we all do it.  This post is not to focus on negative thoughts about one’s life, more so, to help enlighten you to be able to move forward.  To refocus yourself and take a deep look at all the amazingness in your life.
