1. Wow, Maura. You hit it out of the park with this one. Excellent post. I’m Courtney, a new bloggy friend of Susan’s, and I blog over at The Brown Girl with Long Hair. My biggest takeaway from your post:
    “What was disappointing was that so many people were sharing this and nodding in agreement.”
    THIS. Dear God, people, stop frickin’ comparing. The grass isn’t always greener, and, frankly, I don’t really care if it ever is. My second beef is that, you are right, we are compelled to share way too much in this day and age. But, thankfully, I hadn’t even heard of this letter you had mentioned because I just hopped on FB last month for the first time ever (Go ahead, call me a loser) — and that was to create a page for my blog. Anyhow, I love this post. You’ve gained a new follower.

    • You’re so right about people comparing! That actually didn’t really occur to me while I was writing it. Right, the grass isn’t always greener. I don’t know why it is that people continue to think it is. I’m happy to have you and look forward to connecting on Twitter and Facebook! Welcome to 2014 🙂 JK I do like Facebook for ‘blog’ purposes but my personal account is mostly just other peoples drama. Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment.
