Day 49: My Life versus Yours


This morning I saw a Facebook status of my friend. As far as I know, she’s been living a life that she wants to. I have to admit that I’m jealous with her life – in which she can live wherever she wants, works on her own hours and explore this world, literally.

I’ve been wanting to live abroad and do traveling as a nature. Well, I tasted a life abroad for a while, fell in love and had to stay back to my home country. The main reason was love – for my family. I used to think that my reason was weak. But one good friend of mine always reminds me that I would have live a different life if I chose to stay abroad. I wouldn’t be able to witness the growth of my niece and nephew or being with my Mom and Dad through their old days. Or I wouldn’t met my husband.

So, I have to tell myself that I shall not be jealous with my friend’s life. She has her own life and I have mine. Of course, that urge to stay abroad and travel are still yearning inside of me. But I choose to be grateful with my life here – so far.

Future, welcome me!

Have a good day!

PS: Here is a good article about traveling as a way of living

  1. The grass isn’t always greener…. I am sure the person abroad also looks at your life in different moments and ponders how wonderful you have it. The question is, are you happy with what you have right now? I think you are after reading your blog. Don’t worry… a moment of jealousy or envy is natural for all humans.
