"When you are content to be simply yourself..."

When you are content to be simply yourself
and don't compare or compete,
everybody will respect you.

~ Lao Tzu
Today I took Mats to an indoor playground in our neighborhood. He loves it there and he gets to meet lots of children and I lots of mothers.

Observing all those different mothers it is so tempting to start comparing or competing with each other and finally ending up feeling insecure.

So today I practiced to completely block such negative, distracting thoughts and tried to keep my mind clear.  I felt quiet inside and it even reflected on Mats. On top of that there were many unexpected conversations and friendly smiles. Such a positive experience!


  1. Once we understand it's not a competition and we do not need to compare ourselves with anyone, the pressure is less and the enjoyment increase :-)

  2. Very positive experience indeed! Beautiful collage!

  3. It is a long bath to all of us to learn that but we will be better persons if we learn it.
    Beautiful ranunculus (or is it). I have to go to flower shop to see if they have arrived here, it is one of my favorite flower.
    Have a nice weekend and kisses to the baby:)

  4. Bellissimo post, mi piace l'abbinamento con il baby! Brava hai sempre delle belle creazioni. Ciao Cri : )
