About a year ago I wrote a piece called "Comparison Kills Contentment" for publication at Catholic Mothers On-line. (Angie has re-vamped the entire site at CMO and I encourage you to stop by to see what is new and read some of those terrific posts.) As the entire world embarks on the whole new year, new you theme again this January, I thought you may need a reminder of what I consider to be the best source of renewal .
Just for today, don't compare your beginning to someone else's middle. Be content. Simply be at peace with who you are in this very precious moment. Just be. Believe it or not, that is enough.
