Someone once told me the grass is much greener.... on the other side

The grass is much greener on the other side! or so I thought. Being on the other side has taught me a very valuable lesson:  Life will not always turn out how you want it to!  

We have all been there, we have reached for the stars, arms beckoning, imagining how glorious and fruitful our lives will be, only to be hit smack bang in the face with reality : We don’t always get what we want! It is with this realisation that I find myself sitting alone on a park bench, wondering why my life has turned out the way it has. Did I take the wrong turn somewhere? If so, where?

I sit gazing onto the field with the sun on my face and a dog yapping at my feet. I feel scared, alone and insecure. Where do I turn? Which road should I take? What do I do now?
All these questions are swirling in my head, threatening to drive me insane.

I look at those around me and see them achieving and striving and I can’t help but feel a twinge of jealousy.

I aimed high, followed my hearts desire to a certain extent,  but to no avail.  That path didn’t work for me, but that doesn’t mean it won’t work for you.

All I can do is hope, hope and pray that tomorrow will be a better day; that the sun won’t go down on me. All I can do is hope for a better tomorrow!
