The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. We’ve all heard this before right?! We’ve been told repeatedly “People are never satisfied with their own situation; they always think others have it better.” However, thinking like that can make a girl complacent. Thinking like that can have a girl stuck. Sometime the grass on the other side is so green you can make your old self green with envy.
I’ve found myself thinking why not me. I then have to step back and remember what’s for me is for me. For now I have to take care of my own grass until I get to the other side. I have my own journey. I have my own testimony. I see people getting breaks I wish I had but I can’t envy them. I know I’ll never win that way. I must support my sisters whenever possible. I think that’s we as women trend to be jealous of what other women have. Focusing on what other’s have will make you lose track of all the blessings you already have. I can only jealous of my future self because that girl is truly living the life I want.
You can follow this blog’s newsletter here. Also lately I’ve be doing most of my posting on snapchat@fatgirl_fashion. My snapchat friends were the first to know about the location I selected for my blog’s 3rd year anniversary brunch. They saw first hand my Beyonce’s Formation tour experience and a NYC trip for theCurvycon. Snaps showed L.A. for BlogHer and ATL for TCFStyleExpo and The MakeUp Show Chicago. So be sure to follow on snapchat so you don’t miss any of the action. thefatgirloffashion.com can be found on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter also.
