First up, THANK YOU for your incredible support last week during Hurricane Sandy.

In the West Village we were without power, cell service and heat all week, but things got back on track over the weekend.

I’m deeply grateful to be safe and for your notes of love and concern via email, Twitter and Facebook.

Friends took great care of us and we were extremely lucky. In fact, I had some of the most rich and enjoyable experiences that I’ve had in years (limited access to technology tends to do that!).

However, the devastation from this storm, like all natural disasters in recent years, has left tens of thousands of people homeless. It’s demolished places I love dearly so please continue to send your prayers and support to the folks who truly need it.

Now onto today’s episode, which is something I think we can all relate to: feeling jealous.

Whether we’re envious of someone’s relationship, fame or business success, jealousy is a normal human experience. It doesn’t make you bad or unspiritual and it’s certainly nothing to be embarrassed about.

The challenge comes when your mind gets hooked on one particular person. That’s when normal jealousy can turn into an obsession fest.

In this haunted state, no matter what you do, you can’t seem to stop comparing yourself to one person. You measure yourself against them at every turn. No matter how hard you try, you can’t help feeling like they’ve already “cornered the market.”

If you can relate to this, watch as one brave reader shares her jealousy experience and I offer a shift in perspective that will help her get back in her zone.

As promised, here’s our other MarieTV episodes on jealousy. Watch more about how to deal with competition or another great episode about being jealous of people in your industry.

In the comments below this video, I’d love to hear from YOU.

Do you have a story to share about finding more room at the top that will inspire Veronica? Do you see even more ways for her to expand her fantastic business?

Your experiences and ideas matter so leave a comment and let us know.

Thank you, as always for watching and contributing to this fantastic, global community.

P.S. Save the date because I’m talking with Oprah on Sunday, November 18th at 11am ET for Super Soul Sunday on OWN! We’re going to be tweeting and FB’ing LIVE with Oprah herself so please join us. For more details and a sneak peek at this episode go here.

With all my love,
