The grass is always greener on the other side, right!
Well … isn’t it all a matter of PERSPECTIVE?
CBS Sunday Morning (a lovely show) covered this very topic. In a straight-forward and oh-so-logical way … It IS what it IS.
Read on if you so choose …
When you are looking at your neighbors grass, the angle at which you view it makes it appear greener than when looking down at your own grass from on top of it. Simple truth. Makes sense, right?
Wouldn’t this also apply to all the ways in which we may use this “grass is always greener over there” story?
Isn’t it, again, just a matter of PERSPECTIVE?
And, can’t we instead decide to work on OUR perspective on things? To realize that maybe we aren’t seeing “the other” as clearly or with as much awareness as we could. And, what about the clarity and awareness with which we are looking at “our own grass?”
I don’t know about you … but it gets me thinking. (and smiling a sly, knowing smile)
A. Comparing OURS to THEIRS is pretty silly and futile
B. We have no control over THEIRS, so might as well place focus instead on OURS
C. What kind of focus is key, too. Loving and consistent focus. Regular care and water. Ahhh, but not stifling, over-obsessive or over-bearing. Instead … LIGHTNESS and HUMOR (I know … this last comment doesn’t lend itself to the lawn analogy … but we’re not really talking about that anyway, right?!)
WINK and LOVE!
