7 Sins Challenge - Envy

Hollie 749 08-19-2010 8

This is my piece for the 7 Sins Challenge @ DeviantScrap Everything from Crowabout StudioB @ DeviantScrap Oddly Odds and Ends Boards and Bits Funky People Parts Grassy Hill Wild Things Journaling reads: I don’t think of myself as an envious person but I guess there are things we all wish we had. Sure it would be great if there was extra money in the bank but we get by and I feel blessed at that. Am I envious of skinny girls? Kind of. But I am not envious of the ones that starve themselves and worry about every ounce they gain. I am envious of people with high metabolisms that can eat what ever they want. How great would that be?!?! But I would probably end up with heart disease from eating too much bad stuff. So maybe its a blessing that I don’t have a high metabolism after all. I am envious of people with gorgeous gardens but I suppose if we didnt have a water restriction and I had nothing but time I could have one too. I can appreciate the beauty of others. I am envious of people who have spotless homes. I dream of it somedays but if my house wasn’t wreaked then it would mean that Jason, Nick and the dogs weren’t living here. That is a trade I am not willing to make. I am envious of people that seem to be able to balance career, motherhood and wife. But I am comforted in knowing they are probably more rare than us average janes struggling daily. So at the end of the day, I guess I am a bit envious but the reality is I am blessed and at peace with who I am and where I am in life.
