Have you ever been to the gym and beaten yourself up (even the slightest bit) about how you wished you could be fitter? Have you ever uber bad for yourself after looking a friend and their success on a test or class? Have you ever just felt bad for no reason after comparing yourself to another person?
Due to times we live in and the world around us, it seems as though everyone is comparing themselves to other people. And unfortunately, I am a very big culprit of this! The purpose of this post is to help as many people as possible (including myself) to stop this. Our society as a whole needs to learn where to draw the line on how and when we should compare ourselves to others. This is quite a difficult task, because there is a very fine line between the good and the bad. There are indeed some instances where one should indeed compare themselves to others, but usually the main purpose of this should be motivation and inspiration. The moment the comparison makes you feel even the slightest bit bad about yourself is probably an indicator that things might take a turn for the worst.
Call to action!: To help combat this problems society, do your best to be able to look at someone you wish to be like and truly compliment, and then if possible ask them for good advice on how you can improve! This may seem hard and pointless, but it truly will help you succeed in life. This can increase positivity, encourage growth, provide inspiration and develop new relationships!
Most people think that fudge is really hard to make and consists of a lot of different steps. But over the past few years, I have found and perfected an easy and delicious fudge recipe that can complete in less than 15 minutes. This recipe calls for 3 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1 (14-ounce) can of condensed milk, a little bit of butter and 1/2 tsp of instant coffee powder to really add a little depth and to amp up the chocolate. One of the best parts of this is that you can really be creative, for example, you can choose to make this with white chocolate, make a marbled fudge, add nuts, add different flavors like butterscotch. This is an amazing recipe for anyone who loves chocolate, has 15 minutes. So keep reading if you would like a recipe for this amazing fudge!

Throughout my life my parents have always repeated the words “Time lost can never be be gained” This may sound uber ominous and dark, but in reality this is an essential truth that should be understood by most people (unless you create a time machine 😉 ), because this really can change how you think about your actions and the word around you. For example, this can (and probably should) affect your productivity, how you choose to spend your time and how you think about the future.
