I’ve heard it said that ‘the grass is always greener on the other side’. Sometimes it is, and sometimes it isn’t. More often than not, the grass is greener when it’s been watered and fertilized in the needed amounts, as well as being tended to by the gardener, who checks it often for nuisance pests and weeds that try and sneak in and take over. Are your heart and soul being tended to, so that your ‘grass’ can grow to it’s maximum potential? Even it it has been in a state of neglect, mostly watered only by tears you can turn that situation around. The roots that grow much deeper than the surface and are clinging to life just waiting for the nourishment that is needed, are what’s important. Maybe it’s just the ‘season’ that is causing it to not appear as good as it could. Whatever the reason your ‘grass’ may look as if it is withering, you can become a master gardener. You need tend it with loving care, fertilize it with the things that will bring a revival to it, and weed out the things that are trying to choke the life out of it. Fall and winter seasons in our lives are the times we need to start preparing for a greener grass that will flourish in the spring. Don’t give up. Instead evaluate and take action so your life is able to produce the greenest and most beautiful grass possible. And if you are preoccupied with watching the ‘neighbor’s grass’, just remember, sometimes what appears as real, may just be AstroTurf, or in other words, just an illusion of beauty and perfection. You get busy growing your own beautiful life.
