Is it just me or do the real lessons in life really hurt?  It seems like whenever it's time to put away a childish thing and grow up, it really hurts to let it go.  A part of me has been holding on to fond memories of a former marriage, maybe just to keep from getting bitter and resentful but now holding on to those memories are beginning to take their toll on my current relationship.

I've always been one of those people who have a hard time seeing the beauty in my own yard because the grass next door always seems to be greener.  Tonight was one of the nights when that reality came crashing down on me.  I realized that I was that person always looking at my past or my neighbors yard and finding that the grass looked greener and wondering why I can't have that green of grass.

Mostly because I feel helpless to change what is going on in my life right now.  So I look around and behind me to see what I could have or can change.  As if that can make a differance  with what I'm helpless to change at this moment anyway. 

What I did realize is that all I can do to make my grass as green as anyone else's is to accept my current situation realize that it's only a moment in my life and it too shall pass.   Call it Destiny, God's divine purpose, or any other thing your current belief might call it but there is a place my life is headed just like everyone else's and depending on how I look at it is how much I will enjoy it.  If I can't find the beauty in the here and now, then I'm not going to be able to enjoy it.  So it's time I start finding beauty in my current situation and find a way to enjoy it.  If I can't change it, then I might as well enjoy it until it changes or I do.
