Happy Monday everyone! Yes, Mondays tend to be the worst day of the week, but they set the tone for the next couple of days so at least end this day on the right note in order to have a painless week.
Envy is a dangerous thing. Always wanting things that other people have can be a double-edged sword. On the one hand it can motivate you to work harder to achieve the same success that another person has. On the other hand, you can start to feel like “it’s not fair” for that person to be better off than you. I know you have heard this before and you are about to hear it again: life is not fair. Despite what Disney led us to believe during the first decade or so of our lives, there is no such thing as complete fairness. Once you fail enough times in your life, you will begin to let that idea go.
Here is the thing, that person you are envious of is most likely envious of some other person, or even you. Looks are deceiving. Just because someone “looks” like they have everything a person could want, that is probably not the case. I am sure if you asked them, they could tell you five things off the top of their head that they wish they had. Nobody is ever satisfied with what they have and that is good because that means you should always be working towards something.
Do not let your envy of another person allow you to feel bad for yourself. That is time wasted. You could be using that time to better yourself, sharpen your skills, expand your mind or even learn something. Think of ways you can do that this week and get it done!
