How to be Happy 🙂
Happiness seems so unattainable, something to be found at the end of a rainbow. It would seem that we are chasing it forever quantifying it by “if I have this car” or “when I have this house.”
Have you considered: What is happiness? Go back in your memories and visit the time when you were happy. Is it just a fleeting moment of a sunset, or a cool breeze through your hair.
One of the surest way however to hijack happiness is when we compare ourselves to others. It is one of the easiest ways to feel bad about ourselves regardless of the parameter of comparison. Needless to say social media has made it too easy for comparisons to set in.
Comparison is the thief of Joy as Teddy Roosevelt said, whenever you feel the tentacles of comparison creeping closer think of all that you have accomplished. Be kind to yourself.
You are you that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.

As women I believe we are too hard on ourselves and so unforgiving of ourselves, We are too busy either seeing our own faults or comparing ourselves to others. Every once in a while we tend to fall in the same comparison trap while working on our skills at the studio.
Be mindful! When comparison starts rising, at that moment I want you to visit the very first time you walked around the pole, revisit that moment and acknowledge how far you have arrived since. Do not compare your current pole journey to someone else’s. All Aradia Goddesses need to be mindful of not attaching their self worth to anything or anyone, the moment we do that it ceases to be ours. Happiness is found when you stop comparing yourself to others. Choose to be happy. Focus on creating and being yourself, you are your own masterpiece.
Comparison is an act of violence against the self~ Iyanla Vanzant
