Is the Grass Greener?

“The grass ain’t always greener on the other side, it’s green where you water it.”
J. Bieber ‘As Long as You Love Me’

It’s been crazy around here…getting started on a new job, doing a lot of training. I missed another day, which I will have to make up at the end of the month. Sorry for that…

And, I’m sorry for quoting the Beebs, but it fit here. (I am slightly ashamed I know this song well enough to know this line is in there…) Today, I’m teaming up with the group at Heading Home for 5 Minute Friday & the theme today is Green…

Ready? GO:

“So, where do you consider home? California or Oklahoma?”

This is a question I recently got after relocating “home” from “home”…

Honestly – both are home. It’s hard to separate the two – my heart is divided.

But, when I was younger, I lived my life to get back to the shores of California. The sun, the sand, the surf. My family. Big dreams.

All centered around this place that I was certain was the end all, be all for my life.

I turned 18, and I was off. Back to the place my heart was drawn to.

You know what I discovered after moving?

Oklahoma had a lot of things about it I missed. My heart began to long, again, for a distant place.

This time, for winter snow, my closest friends. My memories.

Though, I was truly happy being there, and I still love California, my heart was pulled back to the MidWest.

And, for now, I find myself back in that place.

I don’t know where the roads will take me, but I hope that no matter where I find myself, I discover home. I discover beauty and comfort.

And, know that I will carry with me memories, because no matter where I go, it won’t diminish the beauty of where I’ve been.

Because, really, is the grass greener?
