The journey of life is like sidewalk demolition. Some people start out with a jackhammer. Some people have a crew. Most of us are all alone with a rusty chisel and a worn out mallet.
But if we're determined to get through this thing, we better make do with what's available. It's not our fault that this is all we have. But it's still our responsibility to use these few tools for the task at hand.
Everyone is going to get dirty. Everyone's going to breath in some dust. Some are going to get hurt. Some will take more breaks than others. All will die in the process.
Coveting some other set of tools is only going to slow you down. The temptation from frustration will be there to use the chisel for harming others. Every time you put your eyes on someone else's work, you risk crushing your own hand with the mallet.
Just focus on working your own sidewalk with your own tools, because that's all anyone can do. This is what you have. Use it.
