Life would be perfect if I lived in that house
Writer Meghan Daum says it better than I can:
"There is no object of desire quite like a house. Few things in this world are capable of eliciting such urgent, even painful, yearning. Few sentiments are at once as honest and as absurd as the one that moves us to declare: 'Life would be perfect if I lived in that house.'"
Although I'm glad I'm not alone in my madness, I'm trying to quell this 'grass is greener' mentality and appreciate how lucky I am to have what I do - not dwell on what I don't.
So, is it just me, or does anyone else have this idea that a 'house can make you whole'?
