The Discovery Of Envy

Finally confronted the awful truth. There was something inside of me that hindered my progress towards a better life. The enemy is Envy.

To be honest, I did not really think much about it until a few days ago. When I realized this, I decided to consciously become aware when the feelings materialize.

It materializes whenever I hear / see people I personally know being successful at whatever they do. I became envious and had thoughts of their success being 'bad' and wished they would fail. Unknowingly, I sabotaged myself.

What is the cure ? The cure is the healing process. Now, every time after I perform my solat, I would offer a prayer of gratitude, thanking God for all that He has given me. I feel now that my soul is lighter a bit.

Syukur alhamdullillah for all that I have ... focus on what you have and want to have :-)

Hi Pet!
Bumped into your blog. Sorry didn't get to go to your open house. Was in a foul mood that day, so I decided to hibernate at home. Zara's so cute. Dah jumpa Mikhail ke? He's so darn cute too; tengok photo je tapi..

Take care you. Salam to Linda. Btw, did you change jobs?

Hi Cool..looks like you've been doing a lot of soul searching. I hope you find the light soon - or perhaps for many of us the journey is a never ending process - it's a matter of degrees of improvement I suppose. Here's to our success, cool.
