When Jealousy Creeps in
Why me !
Is it fair that I’m here.
I try to remember the positives but all I recall is disappointment.
Do I have to pretend to be happy for them. The promotion, the family, the life. It’s all a bit too much.
How do I change my thoughts.
Grab a mirror I hear, stare; stare harder eyes wide open and smile.
There’s a thousand thoughts in a smile.
I feel a sudden release of gratitude.
As I smile I realise how blessed I am,
As my smile turns into I laugh I am transformed from anger into contentment.
Then I know I am moving in a positive direction and ready to continue my day.
