“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough” – Oprah Winfrey

How many times have you scrolled through your social media feed and felt “less than”?  Everyone else seems to be doing more, have more, be more.  

In today’s video post, I want to explore this a little further.

You are the one in control here, gorgeous.  You are the one who decides who has the power – you, or a perception or judgement you have made?

It’s not what another person has or is that makes us miserable – its our perception of what they have.  The story we have told ourselves and continue to listen to.

Comparing our situation to that of a friend, colleague or even another family member is like comparing apples and oranges – impossible.  

Rather than focus on what someone else has – focus on what YOU have.  What lights you up?  What inspires you in your own world?  What is unique to your life?


You are enough, beautiful.  And although there are days that seem like you’ve dropped all the balls – know that tomorrow is a new day and you can pick them up and start again.  This isn’t about someone else – it’s about YOU.  

And if social media is causing you to doubt who you are – maybe it’s time to step away for a bit? 

“I claim my power and lovingly create my reality”

I’d love to know, do you find yourself allowing social media to make you feel inadequate?  

It’s time to feel empowered, beautiful one.  

With so much love,

  1. Spot on, Amelia. I definitely have a love-hate relationship with SM, and it’s so easy to fall into that perception trap. xx P.S. I hope your wrist is okay?!

  2. So true. Comparisonitis is hard at times. My best cure is to simply reconnect with actually DOING my big Why. When I’m out of whack, comparisonitis is out of this world.
    I also make sure I only follow people who inspire me, not ‘threaten’ me in anyway.

    Also – can’t wait to meet you soon!

    Hope you are having a beautiful day – you deserve the sunshine and peace. Keep on inspiring and sharing your good word xx

    Ps – You’ve been K-tagged! xx (http://bit.ly/1znzLnA)
