I felt like I was being accused of a grass is always greener type the other day.
Turns out the person “accusing” me was actually just making a little statement that in no way meant that they were referring to me, but I took it to heart anyway and they got an earful for it.
It was one of those moments that I responded without any thought and my response was perfectly worded and honest and wonderful and I love those random moments when that happens.
But I’ve been thinking about it for days.
That grass that people refer to is never greener. Not at first at least.
It’s the motivation to make a change that causes the step off the original path to wind up being better in the long run. When you stray from your route, the other side of the hill is just dirt. There is no grass. When you believe it will be better, you plant the seeds for something better. You put the work in and you create a greener path.
The other side of the hill is never just ready and greener when you get there. There is nothing easy about stepping off your path.
