The Grass Is Never Greener On the Other Side

I think as human beings it’s only normal to think that perhaps others have it better than us, that perhaps we can find someone better than the one we are currently seeing, etc. This kind of thinking although it may be natural to feel, it can prevent you from seeing all the good that is front of you. It is because of this that I would like to encourage you to see that the grass is never greener on the other side.

Don’t wait until something is lost for you to start valuing it. Remember that you currently have things that others would like to have. That may be the job that you have someone else may want. That can also be the relationship that you are currently in someone else would like to have a relationship like yours. Perhaps even a physical quality of yours someone else may want to have. Whatever it is, remember that you have something that someone else may want.

Also, your grass is as green as you make it. Perhaps other people’s grass looks greener because they are taking care of their own grass. So with this said, start taking care of what you currently have. Whatever it is that you see others have, why don’t you try your best to have that as well but just in a way that it’s unique to you. Start taking the steps necessary so that you can have the things that you want, the life that you want, the relationships that you want, the job that you want, etc.

I would like to encourage you to start seeing the wonderful things that you have in your life. Ask yourself: What can I be grateful for today? What do I have that is just great? What are some things about myself that are amazing? How can I improve the relationship I’m currently in? What are the aspects of this relationship that I love? What are some things that make my job great?

Asking yourself these questions will get your brain thinking and moving toward a more positive direction. Remember that your grass will be as green as you make it to be. Do your best to tend to your grass. Take care of it in every season so that it can look its best. Remember that in every aspect of your life, what you put in is what you get out. If you want your life to be as great as you want it to be, that is up to you to do the work that it takes. You have the power to make your grass as green as you want it to be and remember that just because other people’s grass is very green, doesn’t mean that it is greater and better than yours.

Accept And Be Happy Where You Are Now

There are times in our life where we are going to feel like we want much more from life. We want to make more money, we want a loving relationship, we want to lose weight, etc. What compels me to write this topic is the fact that there are several big “jumps” I want to take that will be life changing that once I take those jumps, I will totally be in a different place in life. Thinking about all that I would have made me so happy and then I thought about how different my life would be and all that I won’t have which made me a bit sad and made me realize how I have to accept and be happy where I am now in life.

There is nothing wrong with wanting more out of life. However, while wanting more out of life, it is important to be happy and accept where you are in life. This accepting and being happy where you are right now doesn’t mean that you won’t be taking actions towards becoming the person that you want to be. What this means is that while you are in the process of changing yourself and your life, you won’t be in a state of feeling the lack of what you don’t yet have. You will appreciate where you are at the moment which will attract more abundance to you. You see the value in everything you have at this very moment because this won’t last forever. I believe this is why we tend to take things for granted. We forget that nothing lasts forever and that what we have at the moment are gifts.

The things that you want require a change within you and outside of you. Therefore, most likely what you have at the moment you won’t have in the near future. You want to be able to look back and be happy with the fact that you enjoyed what you had at every moment. Life is not meant for you to start enjoying your life once you have what you want. No. Life is meant for you to enjoy it now. Delight yourself with the fact that what you want you will have while enjoying what you have now.

How can you accept and be happy where you are now when you so crave changes in your life? For me, it took me thinking about how I won’t have some of the things I currently have in order for me to appreciate what I have at the moment. Remind yourself that nothing lasts forever. Because of this fact, this can be a start for you to appreciate where you are in life.

As I said earlier, there is nothing wrong with wanting more out of life. Just as you are wanting more, be grateful, happy and accept where you are at the moment.
