The Grass is Always Greener?

Is the grass always greener on the other side? I don’t think so. If so, then why is it always the other side where it is greener?

After some much needed rain, my mower pushed through my grass-challenged, patchy lawn with ease. My neighbor, on the other hand, had a different story. As he simultaneously mowed his pristine, always-pruned, weed-deprived yard, it wasn’t so effortless. Several stalls, a few cleanings to unclog the grass clippings from the deck, and his slow pace put him finishing dead last. Sure, I’ve been envious of my neighbor’s lawn before. But, not today. I have realized that greener is not always better.

Sometimes greener can make you bluer. There is a lot of work that goes into a fine lawn like that of my neighbor’s. If your not willing to do the extra effort, green will become brown real quick.

Sometimes greener is not greener at all––it only looks greener from where you are standing. In a different light, from a another point of view, the grass may not be so green. Once you change your perspective, things often take on a different hue.

Sometimes green is not your color. Have you ever seen someone wear something that really drowns out their color? Maybe the green will make you look pale. “Going green” is not always fashionable.

Sometimes you’re just green–green with envy. Don’t want what others have. Forget about the Jones’, make your own way.

Before your sold on greener, buyer beware, maybe you should read the fine print to be certain that your willing to pay the price for all the extra accessories that come along with “greener grass.”
