I used to be fascinated by the 7 Deadly Sins, possibly because my mom used to work for the church and life’s funny like that. The other day I thought about this stationery that I used to have- stationery one of my pen pals said reminded her of the 7 Deadly Sins- and in addition to wishing I still had it, I got an idea for a new little series via SK. Just like how PPOTM is reserved for the 10th of every month, for the duration of the year you can expect to see something pertaining to the 7 Deadly Sins via this blog on the 20th of each month.
Envy [en-vee] noun
a feeling of discontent or covetousness with regard to
another’s advantages, success, possessions, etc.
Why Kate Sincerely thinks Envy’s considered a deadly sin:
Too often we want what we can’t have, especially when we see someone we know have that very thing. Instead of being grateful for what we were fortunate to be given, we envy those who have gotten more. Our wants are insatiable.
Some of my Recent Sins:
I always coveted my Taiwan pen pal’s stationery and even though my mom found me multiple kinds over in Taiwan just like it, I keep encouraging my mom to find more. It’s lined after all!
Justine is constantly making her own envelopes. Not only do I wish I was half as good at making them, I flat out just want to reuse her envelopes most of the time since they’re so nice looking. I guess in addition to wanting to be good at making them I flat out want her supplies.
Allison moved to New York earlier this year and I envy how close she is to things like Broadway and picturesque views worthy of postcards.
I have never been interested in the Sims before, but Kära’s “challenges” make me wish that I was since she doesn’t just play the game; she comes up with ideas whether it’s a Bachelor spin-off or a man who dumpster dives to live (yet lives to dumpster dive) and then writes about the experiences. I envy her creativity.
And my most recent moment of weakness: Envying Nicole and her mother for getting this puppy!
There are definitely more than 5 times that I have envied someone, and I’m sure that by this time next week there will be even more. Feel free to share some of your own sinful behavior and we’ll indulge in Gluttony next time 😀
Sincerely, Kate ~!~
