The grass is never greener...

…on the other side.

What is the ‘other side’ anyways? 

Most of us are familiar with this old saying. I find it fun that it is obviously a metaphor taken from the farm. We’ve all seen horses, cows and goats strrreeetttccchhiiiinnggg under the fence to munch on the grass and clover they can’t get to even though they have access to the exact same munchies underneath their feet.

They’re curious; much like we are.
We spend most of our lives wanting what we don’t have, wondering what it would be like if something were different. There’s truth to the famous saying, “The grass is never greener on the other side,” but why?
No matter what option you choose to have, you’re always giving up something in return.


The grass might have a little more flavor on the other side, but what are you giving up to sample a taste? Is it worth it?


  1. Kelly,

    Having the opportunity to take a year off from a job to work for yourself and soul search is great. I'm sure it wasn't an easy decision and you made many sacrifices to be able to quit your job. Life is short, life is good and we need to be the best version of ourselves. How courageous to realize that going back to a job in town is the best option for you.

  2. Congratulations on your new job! I often feel envious of people who get to take time off to really figure out what they want, but you're so right - every decision + choice comes with pros + cons, and there is no 'greener' side to any grass. I can only imagine the stress of being self-employed when you are 100% responsible for finding + securing funds all by yourself every day. I hope this entrance back into being on someone else's clock goes smoothly + you love your new job!
