“My grass is dying, why can’t it be green and pretty like hers? I hate looking at it, why can’t it just grow the way it’s supposed to? I like that pretty green grass over there…hmmm…”
The other day, I had a conversation with a friend that sparked some thought-provoking questions.
- Is the grass is really greener on the other side?
- When you actually make it to the other side (you get what you want) is it really worth it?
We get so caught up in looking at the bigger and better things that we fail to recognize that what we have right NOW is really amazing too. We look at our spouses and say, “I wish he would buy me roses, like her husband.” –Your husband would probably buy you roses too, if you treated him better. Or, we look at the other person getting a raise at work saying, “How did he get a raise, he doesn’t deserve it!”– You could probably get a raise too, if you showed your boss you weren’t so lazy.
We concluded the conversation with: “Your grass could be green too, if you take care of it!”
Take care of what you have because sometimes you don’t know what you got until it’s gone. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Be wise!
