Above: My parent's cozy living room all pretty for Christmas. We go there every year, and on Christmas Eve we have a huge dinner, and O's folks come to that and we have such a great time! I really miss toasting my toes by that fire.
Below: I used this time between years to make some big decorating headway! I bought a dresser for my makeup, jewelry and accessories and other things that I never know where to put. (I hate bathroom makeup, my drawers are low so I have to bend over a lot, and I can't see without my glasses, so I can't tell what I am grabbing. I know, life is so hard.) I picked up those Ralph Lauren lamps at Home Goods while I was hanging out with my mom.
Ok, maybe I am talking about one blogger in particular. I have a problem with comparing myself to others. Don't we all! Well, if I am being super honest with myself, and ya'll know I like to do that, then I have to admit that I compare myself way too much. Like waaay too much.
Recently I started to feel really bad about myself because I thought I didn't have my shit together enough. I don't have an exciting enough life. I am not pretty enough, or rich enough. I don't know, there is something there, I just have to get to the core of it. I think thats the beneficial thing about jealousy: it makes you look at yourself and say "ok, what is missing, why do I feel this? How am I letting myself down." I have not figured it out yet. You guys are wise, like crazy wise. Any experience with the green eyed monster?
