They Say The Grass Is Always Greener On The Other Side

As the saying goes, “The Grass is Always Greener in the other side”.

But, why does it always appear that way? What causes this perception?

From the other side of the street it always seems like our neighbor’s grass is a little greener. From our neighbor’s side it always seems like our grass is always perfectly cut and never out of place.

And we’re all always searching for this certain shade of green on the side we’re standing on and comparing it to the other shades of green that surround us. There’s always something about ourselves, our career, our friendships, our accomplishments, our failures, our past, our future, our present – and the list goes on – where the shades of green don’t seem to match up or they’re too faded or bright or dark or light.

It’s easy to feel like your shade is always a little off when you see things like that.

But remember – when it comes to who we are, what we do, what we’ve done, and what we will do – we’re the ones holding the box of crayons and choosing the colors and filling in the gaps and designing the spaces.

We color both sides of that grass – We draw the lines that separate the two sides with our own hand.

The grass is not greener on the other side. We just draw it that way.

About Lauren Rains

Life gets pretty f*cking nuts sometimes, doesn't it? Every day I wake up more to myself and more to this world. This website is an expression of that.

Space Travelers is multi-layered exploration of our existence here on this rock we call Earth. We're going to talk about the matrix, UFOs, and astral travel, and explore our awakening into the divine masculine and feminine. We'll discover our bodies both the physical and subtle body. We'll contemplate the sacredness of mother earth and the concept of who/what the hell made this place in the first place?

I also aim to keep this website rooted and grounded, referring to topics that are effecting us in the here and now, such as fighting against the oppression of women worldwide, pealing away layers of social conditioning greedy capitalists are using to turn us into consumers, and navigating this insane technological revolution before the AI take over. I can geek out on consciousness up in space all day, but life happens here on the ground and this is the time we were born into.

This website is about integrating into our full human experience, aligning with ourselves and with each other, shedding skins and transcending into the unfolding layers of ourselves.

My wish for you, and for myself, is to unfold and evolve into our highest selves. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. We need not sell our souls to the status quo.

I'm on the journey too. I write this blog to speak to others who are waking up, or who desire to wake up. Because we can't do this alone.

    sometimes brown grass turns out to be the best kind

    • Hey Carole!
      Right on. Whatever shade of grass it is, we can always color it differently with time a little bit a time and a little bit of action.

    Its the same with how we think other people are better then we are, its cause we see the whole picture about us, about our life – all the ups and downs, but we only see the good parts about other people lives.

    • Hey Vessy!
      Absolutely. And I think that can also be said if one feels other people are better than us – maybe they are, maybe they aren’t, but we don’t really know because we don’t know THEM. Someone can come off like an asshole, but really they’re just having a bad day while someone can come off like a saint but really they’re an asshole. And then we’ve got everything in between.

      It’s all about how we pick and choose the color of the situations around us and within us.

    Even though the grass we are standing in is brown, it only takes a small effort to turn it into a field of green.

  • Hey Laur, love this short-n-sweet post!
    The lawn at my house is full of wildflowers…I never understood people who want a perfect, weed-free lawn. And when I think of life that way, it’s easier to contain my “flaws” and be glad they’re part of what makes me uniquely who I am.

    well said Amazing Laur
