today i'm just really jealous. because so-n-so announced she's having a baby girl and she's already finished grad school and she lives in ------- with her husband and they're travelling to europe in a week. and so-n-so #2 is only 22 and she owns a successful filmography business with her husband and they travel the world together year-round and they're building a big beautiful house. and so-n-so #3 is also a filmographer and her and her husband just got back from an entire summer in hawaii and now they live in california. and i want to be done with school. and i want to have a baby. and i want to have a successful business with my husband. and i want to travel the world. and i want to have a house. and i want to spend a summer in hawaii. and i want to live in california. and that's it! if one more person announces they're having a baby i'm gonna strangle someone!
so i told my sister all my pathetic envy woes over the phone today. and she gave me a little reality check.
>>> i'm only 22. i have my whole life ahead of me!
>>> i've been to 19 countries. i have traveled the world.
>>> i graduate from byu in april. i've worked hard, i can be happy about that.
>>> i work in the women's studies office, which is the best place to work at byu.
>>> i'm married, which is 1,000,000,000 x better than being single.
>>> i'm married to dallas william hadley, who makes me laugh all day long.
so my blessings are different than the person next to me. but they're awesome.
