"A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it just blooms." --- Everything is you and God thing, and there is nobody else involved. So comparing or competing is just waste of time. Keep focusing on yourself, focusing of loving yourself.
I need to remember this. If you find yourself a bit irritated or overwhelmed, it's a sign that you're spending less time with GOD and more time with this world. Through God's eyes. Spend time with Him!
My soaker tub is set up identically to this. Instead of my wrought iron shelf, I would love to do a built in. I've also been torn with beadboard vs. tile for the front of the tub. Turns out I love the beadboard and its cheaper!
