You are going to die. Squeeze all that you can out of this one life you have. Live each day fully, because it could be gone as fast as a half taken breath.

As a society and as people we tend to jump from one idea to the next without really putting things into perspective first. And I’ve done this plenty of times in my life. It’s like climbing a ladder and seeing the end goal, but just running over the steps right in front of you.

And in my opinion, believing that things are better on the other side can lead to 2 of many possibilities.

• Realization of bad decisions


By not eating the grass in front of you and by chasing the carrot on the stick, you will realize they the ”other side” you were chasing doesn’t make you feel any different or changes you in any way.

You will realize you were chasing a false you, and that false you hypnotized you. You will also feel a lot of regrets.

You will regret not enjoying the small wins. You must love the small wins before the big wins. Be faithful in the little things. Eat your grass first.
