the grass is always greener…

 “The grass is always greener on the other side. The truth is, the grass is greener where it’s watered. So start watering your own grass.– Doug Fields

We exert so much energy every day comparing ourselves to other people….we want what others have and we want to be what others are.  Jealousy often consumes us in this pride driven world where bigger is better and happiness is often bought with a pretty hefty pricetag.  

But why can’t we be content with the things that we have, the way that we are and the way that we look?  Instead of playing this whole comparison game, we should use our energy effectively, use it to better ourselves.  Focus less on comparing and focus more on self improvement, being the best you that you can be.  Time is ticking away…are you wasting time looking to be something you’re not or getting the newest and greatest thing…or are you going to invest in yourself and improve what you already have? 

Like he says…start watering your own grass.
