Obtaining Greener Pastures

What is it about other people's lives and career that seems so appealing? Why is it that the grass so often appears to be greener on the other side?

I've been guilty on numerous occasions of admiring and fantasizing what it would be like to be a glamorous TV host, a model, a singer, a designer, or a CEO. Obviously my fantasies only include dressing in the most beautiful garments and being pampered while having my hair and makeup done, lol. All the hard work and struggles that went into that career are nowhere near my daydreams. And therein lies the problem.

Everyone who has a successful life and career has paid a price for what they have. Even if they were born rich, there's a sacrifice involved to keep and maintain a successful anything. Keeping our focus on others' blessings hinders us from seeing and recognizing our own.

There's a number of "grass is greener" metaphors that hold true; "The grass is greener where you water it" (so take care of your stuff/life), "The grass is greener on the other side but it still needs to get mowed" (you have to work honey), and "The grass is greener on the other side because it's fertilized with manure" (doesn't use that actual word, but basically bull-crap, implying all things are not what they seem).  

Value what you have and the experiences that came with it. And not to say you can't obtain more in life, just be prepared to do what it takes, including giving up the time and sleep it'll take to get there.

Bless & Love Y'all!

Stay Pretty & Precious,
