I want to start by saying that this is no more true than, “The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.” But like the saying about the grass it is a thought we believe.
I came up with this saying after hearing jealous statements about my “naturally curly” hair. I have to admit when all the right factors fall into place, I like the curls. However, it usually takes more work than some think. My usual weekday morning routine includes brushing my hair into a ponytail – the easiest option. Some days it is the only option. Naturally curly hair does NOT guarantee pretty curls. I do not wake up with pretty hair (I mean seriously?). It takes effort to make my thick mop presentable.
I believe we have mixed up thinking inside our heads about what grows on the outside of our heads. So before you think that someone else has better hair (or a better life), remember that the hair is NOT really prettier on the other girls head. God gave you the hair (life) He knows you should have. God never makes mistakes.
