The envy-less life

Reading this article on envy from the NY Times, combined with my regular catch-ups on Sacha Chua’s blog, has been very good for keeping my envy in check.

I have a mental list of priorities that I’m happy with – a house deposit, a wedding and a trip overseas, all of which are pretty suburban and traditional, though I expect the execution of the last two will be a bit off the beaten track. Readings like this help to keep things in perspective and remind me that I’m pretty well off, all things considered. It’s a useful thing to remember.
