Perfect Holiday Read ~ I’m Happy For You (Sort Of…Not Really) #HydrateForTheHolidays #FLYBY

I wish I had a review here for you, but the USPS delivered a battered, empty envelope to my house last week.  Not sure what happened on its way to me, but I will get a replacement copy to review soon! I  wanted to get this post up asap so I can give away a copy to one of you, as well! Here is a little more about this book - I can't wait to get my hands on it!

I am excited to introduce you to blogger-turned-author Kay Willis Wyma.  Kay asks an important question: Is comparison-living hijacking your life?

Thoughts from Kay...
Tired of performing? Feeling weighed down by the pressure to be Pinteresting? Does your friend’s wardrobe, body, marriage, paycheck, vacation plans, or photoshoot-worthy home décor leave you wishing your life looked more like that? 
You’re not alone.
With its focus on smarter, faster, thinner, and ever-better, our cultural obsession with comparison is undercutting relationships and sapping contentment. Our friends become our audience (or judges), and our titles, activities, even kids become part of our brand. Factor in social media’s constant reminder of what everyone else is doing, and no wonder we feel drained, discontent, and isolated.  
Thankfully, we don’t have to live this way!
The book title says it all!! 

About I’m Happy For You (Sort Of…Not Really)
Our cultural obsession with comparison is undercutting relationships and sapping contentment. With disarming candor and humor, Kay Wills Wyma explores how to trade comparison for compassion and rediscover what life is all about.
It’s easy to get caught in the comparison games we play with our appearances, our kids, and our homes. Kay reminds exhausted families about tried and true remedies from the pressures of competitive living.
In her warm, relatable style, Kay confronts the comparison epidemic raging in our homes, our neighborhoods, and our social-media feeds, offering remedies along the way.
With candor and humor, I’m Happy For You (Sort Of…Not Really) explores the troubling effects of living in an excessively competitive culture—and reveals simple yet effective ways to escape the comparison trap.

  1. I've been wanting to check this book out - I really enjoyed her previous book "Cleaning House"! My biggest stress this time of year is trying to keep up with the kid's schedules - every day is something special at school and every night there is some event they want to attend!

  2. school.... basically fall and spring lol Ugh kids

  3. For me the stress this year is trying to pull off a normal looking Christmas with a very tiny budget. I had to take a couple months off work due to a sick family memeber and we just can't seem to get back on track.

  4. My stress is the expectation of being at so many events! It stresses me out! I try to decline the ones I can - but there's still so many.

  5. My biggest problem is trying to just LET IT GO. You know, all of those little irritations that happen a hundred times a day. I used to be really good at it- I'm not sure just what happened!

  6. My biggest stress is time and being spread so thin with all the family members and events

  7. I have a hard time saying "no" when asked to help with things I know I don't have time for.
