Don't waste time comparing yourself to 
anything or anybody because it's not based on reality.



You get the point, right?

Social media is a fraud, but only some of it. There's a definite positive part of it. The part that is used for productive content that really helps people. There are large arrays of informative content that expose and open us up to positive influences for our lives. I love that part of it. That's primarily the honest part of social media that I can respect. The other side is ugly, fake, twisted, and appears to be glamorous to the point of people continuously comparing themselves to unreality, fantasy, and fiction. This part of social media is why some people who already have self image issues feel worse about themselves. They're comparing their lives to the people, places, and things they think they see.

False imagery, illusions, facades, masquerades, charades, and the greatest show on earth with the greatest performing acts. 

A circus. 

It's the same way in magazines, TV, and the movies. Very little of it is real. Even the model, Tyra Banks, although very beautiful, said what young girls saw in her at the top of her modeling career was air brushed and a false image of beauty.1 

But don't get me wrong, as a  whole social media is fine, but we must keep it in perspective. It should make us better, build us up, and enhance our lives in some way. As I said many times throughout my blog, you are wonderfully made by God. If we want to see a great model of perfection2 to compare ourselves to we can compare ourselves to Him. He is the real deal and He will ensure we see the best image of quality and excellence when we keep our eyes on Him. And while we will never measure up, at least what He epitomizes will always make us better by default. He loves us that much, so we can be ourselves with Him. No pretense with God.

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa

Protecting My Peace - Day 96 - Disciplining Ourselves for Next Level Greatness

Click to listen to today's podcast episode. When it comes to next level greatness, we have to know that applies to us, not just everyone else. Do you know what God has for you? Do you? He has GREATNESS for you. Yes, YOU -- all of us. It's about doing what you can do and only you can do. You are the only one with your DNA -- none of us. is the same Yet, even when we're feeling down, discouraged, and out, those emotions are only temporary. None of us has it all together. Sometimes I procrastinate and put things off when I know I should be doing better. Yet, I am not as diligent and disciplined as I can be sometimes. Like when it comes to working out, I delay it, because I don't like it anymore. And although I love reading the bible, I haven't been reading it as often as I should lately. Yes, I, Sharon, the Faith Coach, do not do the things I'm supposed to do when I'm supposed to do them. And that my dear friends should not come as a shock to no one. It certa
