Slice of Life choices for the week of June 1, 2008 are:
2. My Greatest Loss
3. Green-Eyed Monster: Jealousy
I am choosing Green-Eyed Monster because I have written about my greatest loss; My mom, so many times I am sure that everyone is sick of hearing it.
Anyway, I digress…
I think jealousy is a terrible waste of time but throughout life we tend to feel jealous of things other people have or how other people look compared to us. As we get older we realize (at least I hope we realize) that this is a totally unnecessary feeling and we let it go. I truly can’t remember the last time I felt jealous of someone.
Being happy for what I have has been something that comes easy for me. I see each day, thing and person in my life as a gift. Why want more, better, someone else’s?
