Scales always lie.

Scales always lie -- quote by Ann Voskamp

This quote is taken from an excellent article on Ann Voskamp’s blog, based on a conversation with her daughter about comparing and measuring ourselves against others.

Here’s another great thought she shares:

“Know how Dad always tells the boys when they’re building something? ‘Measure twice cut once.’

“Well, when you’re building a life? Measure yourself once against anyone else – and you cut twice: them and you.”

I highly recommend that you read the whole thing…
