Greener Grass

Bumble Bee

“The grass is greener where you water it.” ~ Neil Barringham

I’m a firm believer in attending to your own garden, discovering your own potential and valuing your own talents. Too often we get caught up in what others are doing or what they may have, comparing our lives to theirs, that we don’t notice or see value in our own lives or ourselves, which leads us to what I call “copycat lifestyles”. You could have gold beneath the soil of your own yard but you will never know it when your too busy paying attention to everybody else’s. There’s no true contentment in imitating others or living vicariously. People who take the time to water their own grass will always have green yards.
