Green Grass


I LOVE this quote!  I used to be a "grass is greener" kind of girl.  I always looked to another job, city, relationship, or some other change in situation to make me happy.  I liked to "cut and run" when times got tough rather than dealing with whatever situation I had gotten myself into.  This mentality led me to live in 4 states in 5 years (one state twice!) and have 7 jobs in the same amount of time!

Compared to those statistics my life has been VERY stable for the past 6 years.  I have lived in ONE house, in ONE town, had ONE job, and ONE husband.  :)  We moved to my hometown 6 years ago, despite the fact that I swore I would never return!  Sometimes I still have a hard time living this quote because I do NOT want to live here, and in particular I do not want to raise Castiél here.  I want him to grow up somewhere with more culture and more diversity.  Even though this is called "the International City" it isn't all that diverse.

However, as I take life day-by-day I am very content. There are a lot of things I'd like to change:  I'd like to get a job as a Media Specialist and I'd like to have my fixer-upper house "fixed," among other things.  But all-in-all life is pretty great and my own grass is pretty green!  I'd love to take credit for this, but I must admit that my wonderful husband is the "sprinkler" in our family!  I am so blessed to have him to keep me balanced when I revert to that old "cut and run" mentality!
