Many people suffer from “time-envy”. My clients with careers envy the time stay-at-home parents have. Stay-at-home parents envy the morning parade of cars filled with busy career people sipping coffee, off to have adult interaction. We compare lives and create a multiple choice of “less than” or “more than”. Either answer leaves us feeling superior or inferior. Not good.
Time-envy hurts because we are all given the same 24 hours each day. How you use those minutes and hours is a choice. Sometimes it is a million little choices that add up to a life that feels scarce or abundant. Time-envy can tell you a lot about how you feel about your life and where you want to make changes.
Your life stands on its own. It’s not a museum. It’s not a spectator sport. It’s not better or worse. It is exactly, imperfectly, what it is meant to be.
Look at other people’s lives to inspire you.
And then get back to minding your own beautiful business.
Live With Intention. Do What You Love.
