The envious only hate the excellence they cannot reach.
- unknown

Envy (and denial): I'm not jealous! Jealousy is such a waste of time. This is just a new blush color I'm trying. Do you like it?

This was from the archives of A SunnyK Kind of Day. I haven't posted for Illustration Friday in so long, but when the new topic came in I immediately thought of this cartoon.

I try not to be jealous--because it really is a waste of time--but sometimes when it seems like everybody else is doing, getting and going to the places I want--well, I can't help myself! It never lasts long, though, because I realize that it is me who is stopping me from getting the things I want, not the people I am jealous of.

Work (preschool) ends next week, so I plan to post illos for Illustration Friday more often. I miss it!

    I can relate, and you're right: the only one holding me back is me! :0)

    Great illustration!

    I understand being envious of great writers and artists and's hard to accept our limitations, sometimes...

    I understand envy but it can be a drag when it is happening to you! Like your Thoreau quote on your homepage. It really does speak to me.
