Envy is a Bitch

Do you ever force yourself out of your comfort zone and then get an immediate reminder of how much you don't know and then go home feeling really out of it? You suddenly want to read books that don't naturally appeal to you, watch movies that you don't even know how to pronounce or listen to public radio that will surely cause you to go into a deep depressing slow state of coma?

Oh oh oooh how about going into someone's lovely home and once you leave, the only thoughts left in your head are... holy shit my house/apartment sucks. I really need to get my shit together... hmm lighting need more lighting, and that rug in the dining room what was I thinking??

But hold up, someone else has had these thoughts about you. Yes you. You too have been a subject of admiration. So yes your home will never be featured in Elle Decor but the look on your kid's face when they see you after a long day at the office or the simple fact that you top everyone's friends list... I've envied that.
