The green-eyed monster

If you notice envy in yourself, think of it as a signpost to something you might like. They (it might be a facebook post, or another person) hasn’t caused it, they merely shone a light on something you might like, or think you should have/be/do. Ask yourself what it is, and if it’s a true desire, or a ‘should’. Beware of FOMO (fear of missing out) as that is a bottomless pit. You can’t do it all or have it all, nor would you want to. Then breathe and send happy thoughts to the other person. Any other way is destructive to yourself.

“Ask yourself, who do you want to be? Figure out for yourself what makes you happy, no matter how crazy it may sound to other people.” Arnold Schwarzenegger

“You can live your life as if nothing is a miracle, or as if everything is a miracle.” Albert Einstein Don’t worry, I’m not going to tell you that life is all sunshine and roses and that everything is a miracle, that’s not my way.  But I am going to
