For the past few months, I have been going through a deep meditation of comparison. In the blogging world, we see ourselves comparing on the regular to the point that it takes the fun out of blogging and sharing our everyday worlds. I am the ultimate queen of comparing my content and my blog to others.
It was an ultimate goal of mine with the new year to grow my little 2,000 followers into so much more. I visited plans to be as organic and engaging as I could be when it came to growing that organic content and those followers. I set out a plan to be as engaging and as growing as one could be. Soon i started to see the Instagram hot wheels going and vast amount of growth. In that moment it started to get easier and I started to get much more confident in my work.
Or so I thought….
I started to see a constant gain but also a huge amount of slowness. Once I used to be cooking when it came to Instagram now I saw less and less. I instantly started to feel down about the whole thing and with the feeling of competition from a local blogger in the area. I felt I had to be better than that, and continuing to strive to be better than the norm. Soon I saw myself constantly comparing and thinking to myself why I was not better than this girl.
Maybe this is what girls do we compare and compare until our faces go purple and we cry. But for real I was to the point of no return. I wanted to quit my blog altogether and just give up on what I started. The truth is overcoming competition isn’t easy and isn’t something that you can do overnight. But realizing your potential and what you are capable of is something that is awesome and is something that we need to do more of!
Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday!
