The Grass is always Greener, so they say…

Sometimes I question if Marco and I have made the right life decisions.  This typically happens when it is that time of the month or my SIL gets a GLK two weeks after a 14 day trip to Paris.  No, I’m not bitter, really. 

I question if I made the right decision to not peruse my love of hospitality when we moved or if Marco should have gone to USC/NYC instead of UNCSA in order to make more connections within the industry.   After I feel sorry for myself for a few minutes {cough…hours} I realize that I truly am blessed and that the grass isn’t always greener. 

If we moved back to Georgia we would live in Highlands in hopefully a house.  Marco would be miserable because we weren’t in LA and would probably have to settle for corporate videos or editing.  I have no idea where I would be.  I’d be working maybe as an assistant or working my way up some corporate ladder.  I would want a baby sooner rather than later.  Weekends would consist of family parties, fun Saturday nights out with friends, road trips across the south, college football with friends.  Honestly, it sounds amazing {not the work stuff}, but it’s not for us. 

We might live in a one bedroom apartment, have crazy student loan debt, not be able to travel to Europe right now or have the clothing budget I desire, but we are happy.  In the end this is what matters.  When I was at my stylist salon on Saturday morning she said I looked different.  Before I left she mentioned it again and I told her I think it’s because I am happy.  I truly am.  I know this is the plan God has for M and I and I couldn’t be more grateful or excited to see what else he has in store for us.

Great post. Sometimes you need to look around at what you do have vs what you don't have.
