Grass is greener on the other side..

Most are familiar with the phrase “the grass is greener on the other side of the fence.” Why is that? Why is it we are never satisfied with what we have. Are we truly ever satisfied? Take religion out of the equation. Guys always want to have the better car or the prettiest girl. Girls always wanna have the most fabulous shoes and the most good looking guy. How do we know if we are satisfied with what we have?

 

 

 

I’m currently STILL single and most of my close of friends have a significant others and its funny because they’re jealous of me because I’m single and ,yet I’m jealous of them. When asked why they are jealous they all say its because they are free. “Nothing to do Nowhere to be A simple little kind of free.”-John Mayer. Very true, however; when they ask me why I’m jealous of them, it’s simple. You belong to someone and they belong to you. You have love and someone to share it with. Someone to come home to and if you had a rough day; them giving you the simple gesture of a smile and a kiss makes your day seem not so bad.

What I am still learning from looking at the other grass is; If you stare to long you forget to take care of your own grass. Granted I’m glance quite often ,however; I’m learning to only glance just to keep me motivated on what I truly want. And if I continue to take care of my grass it will grow to the point that people are glancing at my grass as motivation.

 

 

The Great Indoors…

 

Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited; imagination encircles the world.
John Mayer’s song “The Great Indoors” is a very complex song with multiple stories/meanings behind it.

For most people the thought or idea about living life to the fullest naturally comes first. Some however  become scared of getting hurt or the shreek  at the thought of doing things they normally wouldn’t do. They get agoraphobia(panic disorder or anxiety) at the sheer thought.

I miss the days of having an adventure indoors. As a child you would build a fort in the living room out pillows,cushions and blankets. The good ol’ days. As an adult indoors don’t have the same impact on us as they us to. Our imagination isn’t the same. You sit on the couch alone watching tv when its raining. So whats missing from making the indoors the “great indoors”?

You might say a childhood mentality. John might say someone special to share the indoors with. The great indoors becomes great when you have someone to share it with. That person that changes your outlook on things that makes the indoors become a whole new world.

Don’t be afraid of having an adventure or venturing to the unknown. Life is full of wonderful people and wonderful memories waiting to share for you.

Congrats to my amazing friend and her fiance. I wish you both the best in the future you share together.
