I was wandering around WordPress, looking in on some of my favorite bloggers. This prompted me to attempt a bit of poetry today. Well, what came out of that, stunk, quite frankly.
This lame attempt got me to thinking about how I felt about the other Amazing talent I see here every day. I thought “I Envy these talented people”.
This made me think about the word “envy”. This is how the dictionary defines the word Envy: a feeling of discontent or covetousness with regard to another’s advantages, success, possessions, etc.
I thought, “Do I Covet? Am I Discontent?” No, I don’t think I’m Discontent.
The dictionary defines Covet like this: to desire wrongfully, inordinately, or without due regard for the rights of others
I don’t think this describes me at all.
So, ok. If I don’t Envy and I don’t Covet, does that mean I’m Jealous? The dictionary defines Jealous as: feeling resentment against someone because of that person’s rivalry, success, or advantages
No. I’m not resentful.
So that leaves Admire. I admire these people and their talents! The dictionary defines Admire as: to regard with wonder, pleasure, or approval
If you are not familiar with the people below, you are really missing out. Please do yourself a favor and experience their work! These are just a FEW of the people and their blogs that I admire! I focus on these because of the poetry that originally prompted this train of thought.
