Day 1: Gratitude

Snap out of comparison mode, it's there to steal your joy.

Have you ever heard the phrase “Comparison is the thief of joy?” Well, I believe that’s absolutely true. When we are in a mode of comparison we assume what we have is just not good enough.

We wish we were better, healthier, more attractive and even more successful. Everyone seems to have it figured out but us.

We’re focusing on everything that we don’t have and that we don’t have enough. We often wish our current circumstances were better. We reminisce about how things “used to be” in our relationships or that dream about that job we just don’t have.

We’re glued to our phones looking at what everyone else is doing instead of enjoying where we are in the current moment. We are comparing and when we do that we rob ourselves of feelings of joy, connection, and happiness.

When we compare, we’re transforming our brain’s energy into negative emotions, which leaves us little mental bandwidth to experience joy and enthusiasm.

If you’ve ever been caught up in this spiral… and I know I have… then you know it’s exhausting.

The good news is, is that we can flip the script and change our way of thinking and all it takes is gratitude.

That’s exactly what we’re going to cover in this video. So stick around.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
