The grass is greener

That's what they say when we are not satisfied with our situation and envy other's position. ......... But the green green grass in my picture didn't raise any such feelings in me. Yesterday ,I visited this mission hospital and as I walked around the green overgrown field it was a trip down memory lane. Some old residences where still there and I looked wistfully from outside seeing the past unfolding like a motion picture.... memories, sad ones, glad ones. A few old ones were torn down and tall buildings occupied it's place. Lots of workers mowing and cutting the grass and vegetation. They looked curiously at this middle aged lady clicking random shots of the surroundings....I shared these later with my friends who were part of these.. Nostalgia is a two edged sword.

Indeed, it is not always greener on the other side. I experience liking to work abroad too, after a year after resigning from my job at the bank, However, hubby and our daughter who was just a kid then, don't like me to. They said they don't like to live abroad since we want us to migrate. They said they like it here and we can live here comfortably and simply. I realized they were so correct.

I always feel like the grass is yellow and not green on the other side. Which means that everyone has problems; only we don't see it or they hide it without knowledge. The green grass is seeing things on a positive stance, and I'm always grateful to see green all the time.
