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.
