It’s gray, I think it rained overnight, I’m not sure. I don’t know if those big storms west of us are heading this way, but I guess I’ll watch it.
The blog offered another prompt today: “Who do you envy?” This time I didn’t even hesitate before I started writing but there it is.
“Who do you envy?”
What a weird question. Envy is an ugly thing, I think, with an undercurrent of jealous hatred, of entitlement. Envy sounds like you think that someone else’s circumstances should be yours.
Should we encourage such thinking?
Who do I envy?
Everyone and no one.
Every single life has problems, no matter what social media says. And some may seem more manageable than others to us, but that’s also often when you’re well outside of them.
Everything is distorted from the inside the bubble.
Honestly the most I can hope for today is to get through my list of nagging chores, things I have no desire to do, as quickly and as painlessly as possible.
Who do I envy? People whose lists are already done, that’s who I envy.
Have a great Monday.
