Is the grass really greener ?

imageEveryone is always talking about, there is more to life than this.
The problem is, we become restless. We can’t settle on what we already have or be satisfied with what we’ve got because we’ll always be wondering about the next big thing, if life could be better.

It’s called “the grass is always greener” syndrome.
Our thoughts run wild with us and we think everyone else is having a better time elsewhere. In doing so we make ourselves miserable by constantly thinking about the unknown in an endless quest to find happiness when if you look closer you could have already had it right under your nose.
I know I did.
And the saying “The World is your Oyster” has us all itching to see the world, because we all think those holidays are greener, so we puzzle over should we pack up our lives and see the world, settle somewhere else, but when roots are down will it still be the case of greener, or will the troubles of life just keep flooding you no matter where you are.
How long will the grass stay greener.
Is it not a case of better the devil you know, than the one you don’t.

Shouldn’t we counting our blessing and enjoying what we have around us and what we already know.
Is there not comfort in feeling safe?
Ok the view looks pretty over that fence but is it home? Is it felt in the heart?
Will it hold close the people you love, will it give you everything you need to be happy, give you the warm fuzzy feeling you get in moments you’re not stressing about bills, work and everyday crap that crashes down on most of us every day.
Isn’t it just running away, and how long will it be until your once again looking for the next fence and the greener land?

Shouldn’t we be looking at what we have already and thinking, omg my grass is the best in the street.
I have love to give, a roof over my head, friends who care and food on my table.

Does where it is really matter? It’s who is there living life with you that matters, it’s who you love that makes a place worth staying and makes it home.
I only know this through finding that feeling and seeing that where your heart is, is home.
Be it a cardboard box on a street corner, if I could be with the guy I love, it would be the greenest grass and the best dwelling there is to be seen.
For I know that as long as your with the person you love, there is no greener grass, because love is all you need to feel like a queen or a king.
You’re the richest person there is when you’re in love.
There are no more sitting on fences wondering if there is better out there because the heart knows you already have it all.
