Have you ever thought about the saying "the grass is greener on the other side of the fence". Well seeing as own animals, I find that they sometimes seem to think this is the case, but most often when they get to the other side, they realise that the grass on the other side in fact tastes the same as on their side of the fence and in-fact now they haven't got any water and all their friends are on the other side and when it rains they cant get to their shelter and all in all the grass that seemed greener on that side, is in fact now greener on the other side, only problem is they don't remember how they got out there and so cant work out how to go back.
I wonder how many of us are a bit like the animals described above? Do we always compare what we have to what someone else has or our life to someone else's life? The thing is you were made to live your life not someone else's and chances are that what you see is just the green, just the good bits and if you were to see what they had to go through to get to where they are now, maybe you wouldn't actually want it. The second photo shows what it actually looked like on the other side of the fence.
Maybe it's time we stopped looking at the other side of the fence and wishing we had that, but instead looked at what is on our side of the fence and work out what we need to do to get to where we want to be. Maybe it's time we stopped wishing we were living our friends life or that celebrities life, and instead realised that you are the answer to someone's prayer and that each of us have a choice to live. We have a choice to live the life we have and live it to the full or get to the end wishing we had lived it, instead of wishing we were living someone else's.
