I love the old saying "The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence" because that is the way so many of us, in fact all of us at various times, live our lives.
Once we have grabbed something we previously desired above all else, we then set our sights on some other vision of loveliness... and so on... and so on. But rarely, if ever, stop to enjoy and fully appreciate those things... and people... we have already "Grabbed"!
Life becomes one big "Black Friday" where we rush in and grab at everything on sale as if it will not still be there tomorrow and tomorrow, those things we grabbed today are shelved and unappreciated because we got them so cheaply.
Everything has value, but for some of us that value is for a fleeting moment... not for life... and in those fleeting moments we miss the "beauty" of the moment!
