The grass is greener (or not).

4 Aug

I am writing this blog, as this all too common citation or whatever it is, has been a subject of perspective and conclusion for this week. So far; considering its only Tuesday.

“The grass is greener on the other side.”

There it is.

Before we all go running off to what we think are greener fields, lets be sure they really are greener now.

I have started to think, whilst the grass looks greener, it may just be getting better care. And while we’re busy looking at another’s ‘grass’, someone may undoubtedly be eyeing off ours.

This idea ties directly to the certainty that it isn’t necessarily greener on the other side, just different. It’s the chase and the challenge that create such a glorified silver lining.

It’s all about something else, something rebellious within and the unattainable things just out of reach.

We might usually find the riches we seek without knowing, whether intangible or fiscal, it’s all a matter of perspective (Ahhh there’s that lovely word again), and discovering what we really need and want out of it all.

“Just because you don’t see shooting stars, doesn’t mean it isn’t perfect.”

Realistically, the grass, it isn’t always greener on the other side. But there will always be that regret thing again. …Burning little questions in to the back of your mind.

If you don’t push the idea, the reality just that little bit further – you’ll always wonder, will you not?

Now for another question.

What came first – the chicken or the egg?
