greener grass.

17 08 2010

The grass is always greener on the other side.

Well, it certainly seems that way at times.

It seems to me that the happiest people I know are the ones who have learned to completely ignore that saying.
It’s not a skill I have really developed yet.

I’m a looker.
I’m always on the look for the next thing…

But as I got home from work today I thought about the blessings I have in my life and my mind was at peace. I was filled with gratitude and my mind was not focused on the “next thing” – but rather was grateful for all that I currently have.

This is a thought that I need to make on a more frequent basis.

“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ…” (Ephesians 5:20)

Maybe if I was a little more grateful I would be a little less prone to looking elsewhere for greener pastures…

? Are you a looker, or ever grateful?
