Why is the grass always greener? Or better yet, is it? If you are one of those people that realize the beauty in what you had – post having it, are you doomed to never being happy in the present?
As one of those people, I prefer to think of it as a constant re-evaluation of your self. Often enough those affirmations of the past are usually me recognizing that my current self isn’t exactly who my old self thought I was. For some reason holding onto out-dated convictions is a hard thing to let go of. At just shy of 29 I am looking at all of those absolute statements I have made of myself, my likes, my dislikes and trying to see what still fits and what I need to let go of. It turns out, it would be easier to let go of them all and start over. Fresh.
Easier said than done.
So, is it that we all want to jump the fence? Or are we just becoming better acquainted with ourselves? And if that is true, for me, for you, what is the point in preferences at all? If I can look back at the last 10 years of my life and already see so much change in who I thought I was, how am I going to form ideas of what I will like, and be like in the future?
Maybe preferences have there space in the here and now. Perhaps it is as short as… today I would like coffee, without the notion of tomorrow at all… And that’s it. What suits me in this moment?
Because the only thing I can deduct from staring out over yonder, is that I really have no idea if I will even like grass at all when I get over there.
