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.
