Why does the grass on the other side of the fence always look greener than ours? Why does it seem like others are getting more breaks and are happier than us? Have you ever found yourself wondering these exact thoughts? Well, you are not alone. It’s just human nature for all of us to think like this occasionally. I call this stinking thinking!

From time to time we all fall into the trap of stinking thinking. We’re all insecure sometimes. We’re all jealous and moody sometimes. And that’s just how life is. There is really not much we can do about it except realize that stinking thinking exist. By realizing that stinking thinking will occasionally find its way into our minds we can be ready for it when it does seep in.

So, when we’re having one of those moments, or maybe even one of those days in which it seems like others have a better life than us, we combat it by noticing our negative thoughts and then saying to ourselves, “Oh, look. There goes that stinking thinking thing again. Isn’t it funny how that stinking thinking thing is trying to ruin my day again?”

Well, we’re not going to let it ruin our day, are we? And we’re not going to let it because we know it exists and we can see what it’s up to. We’re not going to let that stinking thinking or that green grass on the other side get to us anymore. We’re going to refuse to be a victim anymore because we weren’t born to be victims. We were born to be victors! From now on, we will train our brains to see our own green grass and have our thoughts work for us, instead of us against us.

Now please share with the rest of us how you plan to use Granddaddy’s secret of,  ”Our Grass is Green Too!”

 

Thanks for your time,
