Breathe deeply and simply rest.
For a moment, do not think about what you must do later today.
Simply allow yourself to gather strength from God's love, to be replenished by God's mercy, invigorated by God's very presence.
Give thanks to God for this energizing love.
If they do have envy, it will not be viscious as before, when they were distressed that others were preferred to them and more advanced.
St. John of the Cross
Be not surprised that you have feelings of envy when others are preferred, but do not allow those feelings to have power over you. In your prayer today, be intentional about praying for your neighbors’ success and advancement.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
