Journal on Monday: week 91, for Mixed Media Place

Hello sweet JoMers!
Today's Journal on Monday video is a spread i did for the new Mixed Media Place challenge. The theme is jealousy. I had a hard time working around that, as it is an emotion i have let go off a long time ago. I don't deny i'm not envious at times, but not jealous. (The main difference between envy and jealousy is that envy is an emotion related to coveting what someone else has, while jealousy is the emotion related to fear that something you have will be taken away by someone else.)
I focused on the words of The Dalai Lama, who says that jealousy, like any other negative emotion, is a feeling you can abandon. As long as you choose to do so.
Enjoy the video!

Coucou les doux JoMeurs!
Le Journal on Monday d'aujourd'hui est une page que j'ai faite pour le nouveau challenge Mixed Media Place. Le thème est la jalousie. J'ai eu du mal à travailler sur ce thème, car c'est une émotion dont je me suis débarrassée il y a longtemps. Je suis envieuse de temps à autre, comme tout le monde je crois, mais pas jalouse. (la différence entre les deux est que l'envie est une émotion où l'on convoite ce que quelqu'un d'autre a, alors que la jalousie est l'émotion liée à la peur que quelque chose que vous avez sera enlevé par quelqu'un d'autre.)
Je me suis focalisée sur les mots du Dalai Lama, qui dit que la jalousie, comme toute autre émotion négative, peut être abandonnée. Du moins si on le veut.
Bon visionnage de la vidéo!
