The Grass is Always Greener...

I have Lawn Envy. Our neighbors yard is immaculately cared for. Their lawn is almost free from moss or weeds. I admire it each time I drive by.

Envy is defined as painful or resentful awareness of another’s advantages. We have a great yard and lawn, in fact we often receive compliments about it. But when I move into that place of envy, I forget to be thankful for what I have. Gratitude is a healing practice and it can't be practiced too often. It is helping me overcome my Lawn Envy.
