We all know that the grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence.
It is greenest where it is nurtured most.
I know this.
I also tend to forget this regularly.
I can spend valuable time and energy rubbernecking into other peoples' lives imagining
that they are having a much easier/happier/healthier/wealthier time than I am.
I want to stop engaging in such a wasteful and pointless exercise
- and a new year is the perfect time to ditch the habit.
If only there were a patch I could wear to wean me off the comparisons.
2013 - the year of focusing on, and tending to, my own lawn - weeds and all.
