The Grass is Not Greener

We’ve all heard that saying again and again, the grass is always greener on the other side. It is not. See the awesome thing about my grass is that its MY grass. Lets face it, your grass would just not fit me right. The shade of green may not go with my eyes ; ) or it may be a little too long for my short stature to walk through.

When things aren’t going as smoothly as I wish them to be for me or my family, I don’t wish to be another me or another family. I ¬†work for things to get better. I hear many other people, frustrated with a situation wishing they were like “so and so”, “since they have it easy”. I am not saying I have never done that in the past but once I came to the realization that everyone has a journey to travel, it has made my life easier. I am able to appreciate what I have. To appreciate the good, the bad and the ugly and grow from them. Perhaps that is something that comes with maturity and experience for many. I guess there are some who may never get it. I’ve met a few people like that and they are quite bitter. Knowing that that is not who I want to be or become I made a switch in my thinking years ago. So far it is working for me.

My grass is meant for me and as imperfect as it may be, its perfect for me.
