Jealousy works the opposite way you want it to.

CAPES [something empowering] Jealousy is most often internalized, but definitely has its way of working itself to the exterior, and it never looks good. The same goes for bitterness, hatred, and low self-esteem. Think about it.

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] I visited the neighborhood hot yoga studio today…it had been a while, but a humid 105 degree room felt great on a rainy day. If June keeps this weather up, I can see myself becoming a regular [yet again].

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] Picture yourself in a coffee shop where you witness the following: A man abruptly enters the shop and loudly pleads for someone to call the doctor. This is clearly an emergency. So the barista asks “Are you sure you need a doctor?”, and after a short conversation, she reluctantly calls 911. Then the man sits down. Alone. No one talks to him. No one assures him that the ambulance is on its way. He waits segregated and ignored. Now picture that the man is homeless. Does that justify the actions of everyone in the coffee shop (including my own)?
