Sideways glances
through narrowed eyes

Angry thoughts
of fairness
and pride

Resentful bile
swelling in the gut

Words choking my throat
I would never want to say
and feel ashamed to be thinking

Jealousy. The Green Eyed Monster

But I can make a choice
and jealousy
or envy
will not rule
my life
my thoughts
my body

I will conquer
the Green-Eyed Monster
and wish everyone well
and be happy for other’s success

without making it about me.

For I will change my focus
and see the light
in me
see the beauty
in me
see the uniqueness
in me

And travel on my own path
Noticing my own blessings
Living my own story.

If you would like to learn skills forĀ Kicking that Green-Eyed Monster to the Curb, join me and Patricia Love, Life’s Cheerleader, for a FREE webinar Tuesday eveningĀ filled with 5 solutions and exercises to overcome jealousy and live a peaceful life.

“Ok, kiddo – if you think so
but I don’t care about your stuff –

or make you feel better.
But I will let you figure it out,
and I will just love you.”

My worth, my value, is not determined by what I own.
I refuse to feel less than
someone with more
I am more
than my stuff
