I just had a “meeting” with an old friend. There’s a project I want to develop and she has just the right set of skills and talents to get it off the ground. So I’ve been hounding her for the last few fews/months about it. Today we finally met and brainstormed and I think it’s gonna get off the ground.
Anyway, she said something about how she never gets to go out on dates. Comparing herself to me and my fabulous, exciting life. And I said that she didn’t go out of dates because she was married (happily, for eons).
It was a classic moment of, ‘I want what you have’. But, not really. Just superficially. Because we’ve both made very specific choices that have brought us to where we are today.
The grass may always seem greener on the other side. But if I really cared about green grass I’d learn to take better care of my lawn.
