Comparison is the Thief of Joy and Why YOU Need to Stop it

Are you the Queen of Comparison?

How many times have you looked at someone – a friend, neighbour, colleague, school mum, family member – and said to yourself “she’s got it all, she’s got it made, she’s got such a good life”? And then turned round and compared it to your own life?… Read more

What’s the first thing you do in the morning? Grab your phone and open Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/Pinterest.
