Honest

 Honest post here. 

Envy

Those four letters

Give me pause

An anxiety

For I suffer 

From it 

Started at sixteen

Medically unable 

To drive

Now to social media

Seeing the destinations

That capture my imagination

And I’ve not seen yet

I know I’m in

A waiting season

And I’m having

To trust

What I don’t understand

About myself

I’m no longer

Seeking the answer 

I just want to learn

What I was too stubborn

To do 

Long ago

  3. It's always so hard wanting what you can't have. I need to get better at finding the blessings in my life, but I struggle with that too. Love your words, as always! :)

  4. I think at some time in our life, we are all in a waiting season. That is a good phrase you came up with, dear friend.

    Have a pleasant week.

  6. That's a nasty word, envy, and if we are honest, we all struggle with it to some degree. To replace it with trust is wise!

  8. I know the older we get the more we can't do but we are finding those things we can and those that we can't that we want we find films about them and see them that way

  11. I think envy is normal. It's when it gets malicious that it becomes one of the "Seven deadly sins." I think these days we all have a bit of envy for those who are more easily able to pick up and go.
