Quite often, we find ourselves looking for something better, something bigger, something different. For example, now, with social distancing or having to cancel plans and trips. We find ourselves standing in the weeds and more we focus on it, the uglier it gets. The more we focus on it, we find ourselves water everywhere but where we stand. But the truth is, the weeds we see in our backyard are green fields to others.
So as we spend that down time with ourselves, let’s remind ourselves that the grass is always greener where you water it, and that the greatest opportunities and sources of strength and satisfaction are often in our own backyard.
Let’s practice self-care and compassion towards others and ourselves, and water the grass under our own feet.
