Daily Prompt: The Green-Eyed Lady

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

My first processing of this question made me stop and think about the why of jealousy and not just then when 

Many things can (and do) make me jealous.

But I have been working on letting go of jealousy because it does not help me live a productive and God honoring life.

Jealousy often raises its head when the temptation to compare myself to others comes into play. That is a tail-chasing and losing game.

Learning to be content with who I am, while still endeavoring to grow and mature as a person, and with what I have really keeps the green eyed lady at bay.
