We all get jealous from time to time — what wakes the green-eyed monster for you?

I can’t write with sense today. I don’t have the strength. I feel deeply frustrated, discouraged and tired. There are annoying noises coming from some building work in the street, driving me crazy. No way to concentrate in what I’m doing. This shouldn’t have been a problem to me, used to work in the noisy environment of a newsroom. But this constant pounding and drilling is too much. Jealousy? Right now I’m jealous of people who have good health, good spirits and a quiet place to work.
Seriously, I think I’ve never been a jealous person. I’m satisfied with what I have. A wonderful family, a great job until I had to leave because of my health problems, good friends… What else can I ask for?. I’m thankful for what I have. There are many people who doesn’t have what they need to live. Or they live with lack of love. I’m a privileged one. I can’t complain. I have a lot of reasons to give thanks to God.
