When I’d look at certain people, I used to covet the things they had. Whether it be their “picture perfect” marriage, kids, or “fancy” lifestyle, I wanted it. However, no matter how much I wanted it, I couldn’t have what was theirs. Even if it were given to me, it’d never fit, because it wasn’t made for me. Instead of desiring to be them, I prayed to God, because I knew He’d give me the desires of my heart. The only thing I needed to do, was what for it. Looking back, the picture they painted was pretty, but their life was no doubt ugly.
Sometimes, I sit and laugh to myself, because I realized, it wasn’t their life I was after. What I was really after, was a “filter”, because who knows what things really looked like, when the mask came off. Honestly, I wouldn’t have wanted to be there to see it. Besides, I’m too afraid to see what my life could’ve possibly been. Eventually, I stopped coveting what they had, because I know what I have coming is far greater, and it’s customized solely for me.
Don’t settle for what someone else has, because yours is so much better!
Until next time my NOTE takers!
