KEEPING IT NATURAL
The Grass is Greener on the Other Side of the Fence
b Mae Johnson
Bruce Lee once said, "Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into
a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle, and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a
teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow, or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” There
may be days when you may want to give up because life is not going as you planned it. Know
that you have everything inside you to overcome anything you are going through. Take a broken
piece of blue crayon. It looks horrible does it not? However, you can still color a blue sky with it,
and it would be just as beautiful as a sky drawn with a perfect crayon.
The Grass Is Always Greener on The Other Side of The Fence.
A familiar phrase states "the grass is greener on the other side of the fence”; however, the water
bill is, more than likely, higher, as well. Stop worrying about how others manage their life and
grow from where you are planted. Many are crying themselves to sleep at night because they
do not have what you possess. You are not the only human with flaws. Everyone has flaws. You
can give up or you can work with what you have.
