Are You Seeing Other’s Happy Masks?

Happy Masks

"What makes us discontented with our condition is the absurdly exaggerated idea we have of the happiness of others." – French Proverb

Sometimes we assume that because they have the wonderfully decorated house or kid’s on the honor roll or a terrific job we think we’d love that they are happy. But they are too busy looking at the person with a slower lifestyle or their artistic talented child or the job they think they would like better.

    This was a hard lesson for me to learn!!! But how the quality of my life changed when I finally figured it out for myself. My thoughts and how I experienced my life did a 180. Now, instead of being envious of everything everyone else has I am extremely grateful and praise God for all He has blessed me with. I’m copying your opening quote – I loved that!!!
