Need To Learn

Sunday, July 28, 2013

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.

    lolol...I love this, Kristy :-). I laughed out loud for real when I read that line...

    ...when it's just not fair that it seems so easy for others

    Sweetheart...it is NEVER easy for ANYONE. And I promise you this...if they make it LOOK easy, it is only because they have been through UNIMAGINABLE suffering and demonstrated UNPARRALLELED DETERMINATION to change :-).

    You reap what you sow...ALWAYS. That is a law of nature and the Universe. Put in the work and you reap the reward. There's no magic bullet :-).

    Having the ABILITY to be ANYTHING is not the same as having a RIGHT to it. Thanks for reminding me of that :-)

    Love you Girl!
