Blog Quote #699...(It's always better somewhere else- or is it?)

Here's Blog Quote #699...(It's always better somewhere else- or is it?)

"I have learned not to look for the greener grass on the other side of the fence. I look for a SMILE on the face of the cow."
-Gary Gulbranson-

Two things popped into my head  when absorbing this quote. First, it's not always greener on the other side. Difficulties are everywhere. People have a tendency to run away from their current troubles-- as if they a.) won't follow them and/or b.)  be re-created in the new setting. Not 100%-- but it's likely not the setting, but the person who is creating the challenges.

Second, it's not in the hype, but in the actions of people, that we can find the real story of what's better and what's worse. In this simple statement...the Smile of the cow  shows that whether the grass is green, blue, or orange--since the cow is happy,  it might be worth looking into. 

Today's food for thought...

That's my view...what say you?
