I’m ashamed to admit that I have been consumed by terrible, debilitating jealousy in the past few days. I’m not going to give you any details because I’m not proud of myself. Just trust me when I tell you it’s been seven deadly sins bad – even though I’m not sure jealousy’s one of the seven deadly sins. If it’s not, it should be. So, in an effort to turn that life-sucking emotion inside out and use that power for good instead of E-V-I-L before it eats me alive, I’ve been keeping really busy this week. It’s amazing how much kinetic energy that little beast, jealousy, creates.

Now, before you go thinking I’m some sort of angel, or Pollyanna, or something, turning all that negativity around, I’m not. I’m shallow. I’m very, very shallow. This attitude shift is all about self-preservation and the fear of eternal hell-fire. Well, maybe not the last thing so much. I’m selfishly using this jealously thing to light a proverbial fire under my sedentary, dimply butt.

It’s time to get moving again. I’ve got a business to get off the ground. I have ideas for projects and posts and I still have a fancy camera I barely know how to use. Life is short – too short to spend it comparing my life or accomplishments to anyone else’s. Time to begin again. Happy Thursday!
