Is the grass greener?

The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

A pithy saying I'm sure you've heard before, but how accurate is it?

How often do we look somewhere else for something better?  In life? At your job? With your church?  Sometimes we're just looking for anything better.

But what if instead of just switching when things got a little tough (jobs, churches, houses, cars, etc.) we doubled down* on where we were at currently.

The grass might be greener on the other side of your proverbial fence.  Or, more than likely, it just looks greener from your current position.  Jealousy and discontent are powerful and cloud your vision.

*double down: "to make double or twice as great, to add an equal amount to"
