Just Jealousy

Day 10 – J

Jealous of

This is a hard one. I don’t want to be jealous and not appreciate what I have, and I don’t like to focus on what I don’t have. Having said that, there are a few people I’m jealous of:

I’m jealous of myself five to eight years ago. I was in grad school, doing really cool things with really cool people. I had a close group of girlfriends I made art with every month, I had couchsurfing, I had Cohiba… Good times.

I’m jealous of women with certain body types: a jawline, muscley arms, a wider smile. I am loathe to admit this, but it’s the first thing that comes to my mind at this jealousy question.

I’m jealous of people still living in Seattle. I even had a dream last night we were moving back! But that’s homesickness and we’ll go back one day.

What about you? What or who are you jealous of?

  1. I’m jealous of people who are able to write everyday cause it seems like I’ve run out of things to say… I especially relate to your first one as it is hard to look back at ourselves when all the doors were still open and all you could imagine was potential.

    1. “hard to look back at ourselves when all the doors were still open and all you could imagine was potential.” Does it happen for you, as it does for me, that I think: ‘Five years from now I’m going to look back at this time and see so many doors open?’ Like, what doors am I currently missing?
      What do you do then?

Okay, your turn.
