Jealous... of what?

Posted Monday, November 19, 2012, at 3:36 PM

Too many times throughout the day I find myself wondering why I can't have what others have. Jealousy is such an ugly attribute, yet I fantasize about walking in someone else's shoes.

Look at Kate Middleton for example. She is drop dead gorgeous! She has the perfect hair, a beautiful face, the body of a model and she has the heart of a saint; not to mention the fact that she is a Princess. Wait a minute... my hair is perfect for a few moments following the 15 minutes it takes me to get it perfect, I don't mind my face its the only one that I will have so why not enjoy it and as far as my body goes, there are a few things that I would change but as long as my husband isn't tossing me out the door I am guessing it will do. I have the heart of almost a saint, perhaps that is my most attractive attribute! As far as a princess... I am the Queen of my domain!

Kate is married to a quite handsome prince, whom one day shall be King. Well I have married my Prince Charming too. My husband is quite handsome and he is already King in my book.

Kate has a very attractive sister Pippa. She was a knockout in her Maid of Honor gown, who would not want a sister that looks like that? Ok, come on first of all who would want a sister named Pippa... just saying. I have three sisters that have somewhat normal names...well Billie may fall into the not so normal for a female category as far as names go, but who's judging? My sisters are also beautiful and I would not trade them for 20 Pippa's! (brownie points)

Kate lives in a rather large and exquisite castle, with servants and gardeners galore. Me, I live in a modest home that sometimes while cleaning feels as though it's a huge castle where the cleaning never ends. As far as servants go, I am my sole servant and that is just fine with me. I would feel uncomfortable if someone were to come in and serve me tea and crumpets and clean up my messes. I'd rather clean up my own messes; that way no one knows that I may at times be a slob. I rather enjoy my castle and wouldn't trade it for a fancy one where my grand-kids would have to be guarded so not to break anything. As far as a gardener, who wouldn't enjoy one of those...oh wait my Handsome Prince just so happens to be my gardener too. I truly have the best of both worlds.

Now that I think about it, I just may have what Kate has and more. At least I don't have the paparazzi chasing me down and snapping intimate photos to sell to the media. I have plenty of embarrassing photos on Facebook, most uploaded by myself or family and friends, and not one is worth anything but memories and a good laugh. My jealousy may just become a memory and I may just have realized that I am fortunate to have what I have and love the person that I am.

There may be a little remnant of jealousy left of Princess Kate and what she has, but nothing that will leave me wishing that I were someone else.
