People are jealous… jealous of me. What? This doesn’t even register with me.
About a month ago, a friend of mine told me how jealous she was because my relationship is in its honeymoon and blossoming stage. It’s all out there and full of love and hand-holding and all of that so super sweet it makes your teeth hurt kind of crap. I kind of understood. I know Jeremy and I won’t be in this stage forever and I know how powerful and full of sunshine and rainbows relationships are in the beginning. It’s intoxicating and it leads to jealousy from others.
But that’s not even the half of it. People are coming to me this week, jealous because we just adopted two kittens and we’re planning all of these awesome things and everyone can see how truly happy we really are. It’s such a strange change of pace. It’s even coming from people who frankly, I’m jealous of myself!
I was just telling a Facebook friend a couple of weeks ago how insanely happy for her, but jealous I was because she has this gorgeous family, always appears like she has everything together and they were just buying a gorgeous home that I would kill to have one day. Seriously… her family is like, magazine cover perfect looking. I know some of it is just perception and that they aren’t perfect – no one is. But geez… when I see all of the wonderful things they have, I can’t help myself. I’m jealous.
That’s why it’s so funny that anyone is jealous of me. I have a very long way to go. I’m excited for it. I wish some of these bigger, better things were the here and now but I’d also hate to miss the journey I know is ahead.
It makes me feel kind of good inside. I guess some things have finally fallen into place and that’s pretty exciting. But don’t be jealous just yet! There will be plenty of bumps down the road to come.
