The Grass is Always Greener…

lawnThe grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.  Now there’s a quote just full of helpful advice…NOT.  There are just too many variables here to make this helpful.  My version of it would go something like this.  It’s kind of long.

The grass on the other side of the fence can be greener, but not always, and sometimes it’s not even real.

Okay now, assuming this means you wish you had the life of someone else because you think yours sucks, let’s break this down and see if you really want to go there.  I have seen grass that I stared at with longing in my eyes and a sigh on my lips.  It was beautiful grass, really.  Then I got to walk on that coveted grass.  Talk about a reality check.  Sometimes that grass is actually artificial turf.  It’s there to confuse and deceive.  Sometimes the owners of said beautiful grass have had to make way too many sacrifices to get that grass.  When I come across those types of lawns, I feel bad walking on them.  I mean, was it worth it all just for green grass?  What wonderful adventures did they miss out on while planting that grass?  I think I would rather roll around in the weeds and have fun.

In conclusion, it’s okay to be happy with mediocre grass.  As long as you have at least a small spot of decent grass to picnic on, you are fine.  Let the wildflowers grow around you.  That’s where you will find adventure!

Well, it’s time to put my soapbox away and get ready for work.  Cheers!
