random ramblings...the grass is greener

i'm in mostly sunny hawaii soaking up the sun and relaxing(something i rarely ever do). i ran this as a guest post a couple of months ago, and today seems like the perfect day to post it here on my blog.
life is kind of funny sometimes. most of us have some kind of idea about how we want life to go. we have plans and hopes and dreams for the future, BUT life rarely goes the way we plan. life throws curve balls and kinks into our plans. it's so easy to look at other people and think their lives are going exactly the way we want our lives to go. it's easy to look over and think the grass is so much greener over there. it's so easy to think of the what ifs and if onlys. the big problem is that's so dangerous. comparison is awful! even if it were possible to switch lives with someone, we wouldn't find the grass to be completely green. we're all familiar with the expression "the grass is always greener on the other side". so often that seems true. i actually prefer a different but similar expression...
"the grass is greener where you water it."
like most other people, my life isn't turning out at all how i thought it would, but at the same time it is turning out so much better than i ever planned. when i nurture and water the life i have, it is so much greener than i could have ever imagined.
thanks so much following along as i attempt to water my own grass.

how do you avoid thinking everyone's grass is greener? what do you do to water your own grass?


  1. Haha, we totally did have twinner posts!! Look at us go. Great minds think alike, quotes and all! :) Apparently it's something that people really need to read today!

  2. This is great, Aubrey. I've never heard the phrase "the grass is greener where you water it", but I will try and remember this each time I try to compare myself to someone who I think has it greener!
