I'm Happy For You (Sort of...Not really) REVIEW!

 I was so blessed to receive a copy of "I'm Happy for You (Sort of...Not Really.)" I excitedly opened the package and not only did I find the book, but also a little thank you gift in the form of cute "M&M" like candies! Seriously, it's the little things like that that make this blogger smile! I truly appreciate it when authors and vendors express their gratitude! 

With that said, I'm Happy for You (Sort of....Not Really) is a lovely book written by Kay Wills Wyma that brings to the forefront the culture of living our lives by comparing to others so that we can be content with what we have, not what we think we need to have in order to keep up with the Jones of the world. 

About the Book:

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 ofcompetitive 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 ofliving in an excessively competitive culture—and reveals simple yet effective ways to escape the comparison trap.

About the Author
Kay Wills Wyma is a blogger, mother of five, and the author of Cleaning House through which she has appeared on The TODAY Show, CNN, Glenn Beck, The New York Times, Focus on the Family, and more.

This outreach is not for the faint at heart…we’re moving into The Holidays which probably only makes COMPARISON a harder topic, right?

That’s actually the timeliness of this opportunity.  Join Kay and her family as she’s started to #HydrateForTheHolidays on her blog posts to learn how to recapture contentment and joy, especially in Nov. & Dec.!!  She’ll be sharing thoughts throughout the season!

My Thoughts:

This book was really an eye opener for me. I saw just how much "comparison" living I was truly doing in my own life. Are my clothes as trendy as so and so? Is my home as posh as my neighbors'? Is my house as clean as that other stay-at-home mom? Is my kid as smart, or smarter? Is my car better? So many comparisons go through our heads daily, that we can get so caught up in trying to live for other people and not for ourselves. this book is great to point that out, and help us navigate our own lives/thoughts/emotions to break the comparison habit and feel comfortable living our own lives for God and ourselves.
