199: Hey, Jealousy

Good morning. I'm so sleepy.

I will have some Quilt Market Post Scripts later in the week. But for now, since it's fitting to today's topic, please enjoy this image from The Game of Happiness(tm):

Do you ever  cringe when there is a new entry in your blog reader from one of your favorite bloggers? There are blogs that I have  to stop reading from time to time because I can get so jealous of people! It sucks! I know a lot of people go through this same thing, so I wanted to address it.

I remembered over the weekend that if I hadn't been at the Quilt Market , I would be reading all the reports and pretty much quietly imploding with envy.  So I just want to check in with you and see how you all are doing.

I truly hope that YummmyGoods will not be one of those blogs that you ever have to stop reading.
I purposely include my challenges because I want this to be real. Pretty, yes, but real too. And often , for me, that includes struggle with depression, self-doubt, and yes -jealousy.

I invite you to talk about this in the comments if it rings any bells for you. It's totally normal- just don't quietly implode! Trust me, the yucky feelings dissipate much quicker when we talk about them! 
If you have no idea what I am talking about here, then congratulations: you are a much better person than I am!
