I love to read. I'll read anything. Yesterday, I was just jumping around various blogs and read a statement that while it didn't strike me at the time, my mind keeps returning to it. Unfortunately, I can't remember exactly where I read it... Somewhere buried in the comments section, so I can't remember it exactly or give proper credit as this thought is not my original thought, but I thought I'd share:
‘Greener grass’ does not just exist, only grass that has received more attention and nourishment from somebody or nature. The lesson in this is that only if I nourish where I’m at will it be ‘greener’
This thought applies to so many areas where I feel like I'm working so hard when it's just not fair that it seems so easy for others... Careers, relationships, finances. I must remind myself that only by working on myself can I improve my situation. We can have no idea the work that others have truly put in. We can only work on ourselves and find peace with that.
