IT GLITTERS? MIGHT NOT BE GOLD!

I saw a movie recently about a beautiful young lady married to a young handsome guy and they were married with 3 kids. They were wealthy and had all that money could buy, the best of designer outfits,best of cars and houses. Her friends envied her because to them she hit the “JACKPOT” when she married her husband because she had the best of everything they were dying to have . Unknown to her friends and her family, her husband was a drug-lord and a murderer, hence the source of his immense wealth and she knew because she ran the business with him and cleaned any mess he left behind. Once she tried to tell her best friend how unhappy she was but her friend brushed it aside saying with all the money she had, nothing should make her unhappy. She lived in perpetual fear of her husband, and the law catching up with him because of his heinous crimes and because she would go down with him and their children would suffer for it.
Recently I read about how Celebrities spend hours doing hair, makeup and the likes before going out, and if they want to go somewhere and don’t want the world to know, they have to take several detours and change cars, a journey of maybe 30mins could take hours all in a bid to ditch the paparazzi and if they are lucky enough they would. No privacy, limited freedom to do whatever because the world is watching. Have you ever wondered why a celeb makes a mistake and the whole world calls for their head while an average Joe makes the same mistake and no one hears? I bet some of them see fame as more of a burden than a blessing sometimes.
Don’t be quick to envy other people’s lives, the ones that look perfect might not be and if it truly is, then a lot of work has been done to get to where they are. You have no idea what a person did to get to where they are or what they are doing to maintain it. Be happy with what you have now and continue working to where you want to be, enjoy the present it goes away too fast, enjoy now on your way to the future you want. Remember, godliness with contentment is great gain.
