“The grass is greener where you water it” ~ Neil Barringham.
This quote seems to come up in my thinking all too often. It may be my sole motivator at times. Simply put, this quote speaks not only a lot of sense, but a lot of truth.
Everything in life needs some form of cultivation. We’d be fools to think otherwise.
Some of us cannot even believe in the thought of a God, yet we believe that without putting in any conscious work, seeds which we haven’t even sown can be reaped.
Others of us who believe in a God, may believe implicitly, that because God is omnipotent, that somehow, no matter what, everything will be okay…
No one actually knows anything though.
But perhaps, if we stop wondering what could be or what was and starting focusing on the present, the here, the now – imagine, how green your grass could be?!
What I’m getting at here is: if things don’t seem like they’re going your way. Take a step back. Look at your foundations. Ask yourself, why is this not working? What can I change that can make this better? Water your grass – don’t wait on the rain.
