  • I look at other peoples lives and wonder what I cannot see. My life is far from perfect but I am working hard to make it a place I want to be. My own company is growing slowly by 2012 we will be making money and producing anime. Just think about whats good and keep building on it.

  • We all get the blues sometimes. If we never wished for something different we would never change to try hard to reach new goals for ourselves. We get in ruts sometimes and it can be hard to get out, its normal.

  • Because we can never truly see the work you put in to make your grass green, so we assume the obvious. Which is a big mistake. People always compare lives. I tend to beat myself up than get jealous of someone else. I start thinking of the shoulda- coulda- wouldas, but instead chose to be stubborn or take the easy way out.

  • try to just be happy with what you have. usually people who look like they are completely happy and have everything are hiding a lot.

  • I used to be that way then I wanted to be happy with my life so I set goals for what I really wanted out of my life, ie material things, more time with hubby (SAHM), and friends (military wife). And with a little work I had them. Take stock in what you have that makes you happy and then look at what others have that make you happy. Find out what you can do to have that or something similar.

  • or....... the grass isn't always greener on the other side. We need to realize what it is that we actually have and be thankful, greatful and appreciative for it. I know I envy sahms, and wonder how they are able to do it? Then off to work I go, children in tow. Tomorrows another day, bigger and brighter.
