We've all heard the “grass is greener on the other side of the fence” cliche. It's a great saying that keeps us aware that we tend to compare ourselves and think that other people have it better. It's perception. Because the people on the other side of the fence are thinking your grass is greener!
But if you really want “greener grass, ” take care of your lawn. Water it. Fertilize it. Do whatever it is they do to make a nice yard (I don't know, I've never had a lawn). You get the drift. Instead of looking at what other people have, take care of what you have, and watch it flourish.
It's amazing how it changes the way you think of “your side of the fence.”

Couldn’t agree more.
Yes! Absolutely true! We shouldn’t be comparing ourselves or our stuff to others. We should just cherish what we have cause we’re all so unique and thrive from it!
Great inspiration! Think that’s a problem we all tend to do way to often – compare ourselves to others – but truth is we can’t compare ourselves because everyone is totally different and has their own point of view. We can only be our own best and it’ll show to the outer world.
That is both true and hilarious(I have no idea why..)
Ooooh, I’ve never heard this one before!
For those interested, I’m holding a MAC giveaway tomorrow!
Great daily inspiration! I think that’s the main problem with comparing ourselves to others too often – we compare our ‘behind-the-scenes’ to their highlight reels, and then the only reason we become unhappy is because we think we should be.
Focusing on improving our own lives leaves no time to look at others!
This whole statement really inspires me. I always thought of it in a different light, though. The phrase “the grass is greener on the other side” to me always meant that you can get away and be in a better situation. When I heard “the grass is greener where you water it” I was thinking the whole meaning was you don’t just go away and suddenly everything gets better, you have to make things better. Grass doesn’t water itself. This meaning shows much more self worth and is much more inspiring.
