Okay, I know that it's not healthy or productive to covet...but I'm human, so below are a few things I wish were mine.
- The ability to read labels in the grocery store. You know those people who actually pick up an item and examine its contents determining whether nutritionally or financially it makes sense to purchase. My grocery outings with 1, 2, or 3 children typically involve throwing items as quickly as possible into the cart and repeating, "No thank you" to anyone of my children as they negotiate why "Fruity Sugar Laden fill in the blank" item should be included.
- Women who wear running apparel in their off time and look good doing it. You know who these people are. You may be one of them. I'm talking about women who look like they've just come back from a hard run/workout and quickly pulled their hair back and still have rosy cheeks. As opposed to me post a workout dawning sweat stained pits accompanied by a nice inner thigh/outer bum ring of sweat...it's really attractive, I'm sure.
- Time. Essentially, I covet people who make time to do the things that help us all to maintain sanity. I stand in awe of people who regularly wake up at the crack of dawn to run, walk, do bikram yoga, pray, mow the lawn, stretch...hell, even to have a cup of coffee. I did this for almost two years post the birth of my second and it nearly broke me. But, I'm desperate to do it again. Because, well, time for me never seems to find it's way during the day.
- The ability to not give a shit. My good friend, JM, is continuously reminding me that true happiness comes from not caring about what others think, say, perceive, or suggest that we should do with our lives. True peace comes from just going with your gut and not apologizing for it.
- Oh, and the Honda Pilot. I covet the Pilot.
That's it for now, I'm sure that I covet many other "things"....but on this Tuesday, I think that the above are pretty cool.
