I am adult enough to realize now... I am perpetually envious ... Ok, lets back up... I am happy, I love my husband, my family, my home, my friends...

Its that I am envious of others talents and styles and I even suffer from  from entree envy!!


We bought our house... then I found about 12 other homes I would rather have
We started decorating... then I saw many styles I should have picked instead
We lose weight and wish we lost more
I buy new clothes and then I wish I had my friends clothes

It is stressful to keep up... but I am trying to teach myself that I do not need to!
My life is great, my home is nice- it is our home! My closet is full with what I can afford and it is my style

The problem is that at this point in our life we are all at different levels... some can spend more money and some less... and that is ok!

There are things I would not change even if I had all the money in the world... oh and then there are some things  I would!!

Long story short... I am working towards no longer having this envy of others!! For my own sanity and also it probably just sounds ridiculous to others (especially my husband) when I am saying "why don't I have that" "why didn't we do that"...

Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.  – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Am I the only one who suffers from this... ??

I suffer from this as well.... One day I will find happiness and inter peace for what I have.
