It looks like our friend Rachel Held Evans is a rock star now! This past Monday she and her husband Dan were interviewed for The Today Show, and yesterday she announced on her Facebook that she's going to be on The View next week. And to think that it's been just four years since she signed with Zondervan for her first book, Evolving in Monkey Town! I'm really proud of Rachel. She's really grown in the past four years.
And yet, I have to make a confession . . . I'm jealous of Rachel.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not hating on Rachel. Far from it, she's awesome! I just kinda want to possibly live vicariously through her because my life kinda sucks in comparison.
Yes, I know, I finally published my first eBook (In Praise of the Doubting Thomas on Smashwords for just $1.99), so my life really isn't that sucky. And it's true, my life's been pretty good lately. I'm on some good anti-psychotic medication. Sean and I are still going strong. College isn't driving me bonkers right now. Life's good.
But there's always that part of me that thinks my life could be better. A LOT better! "If only I had this." "If only I had that." I guess that's one of the downfalls of being a 4 on the Enneagram; you're constantly hoping you were someone else.
Oh well, maybe someday I'll be famous on all the TV shows. I mean, Rachel had to start somewhere, right?
Besides, I don't really want to be on The View anyway. They talk over each other way too much.
