Shine your light!

My friend has 11 kids. That means that for each of my kids, she has just under three kids. And before you think it, it’s not true. I promise.

Her kids are very loved. Not only that, they are well adjusted, happy, well-fed, well-dressed, happy-to-help-others.

Plus they have little to no screentime. Gasp!

I used to feel downright despondent when I visted.

I thought about it a lot. I watched her succeed at parenting in ways I can’t even imagine for years and years. And she continues to do so.

The thing is that her exceptional success doesn’t take away from mine.

In fact, I don’t need to have 11 kids to shine my light.

Stop looking at the uber-successful people around you and defining your life by their success.

And shine your own light.
