Great parenting advice given to me by my Mom while watching me fight a battle with a 3 year old that was not worth fighting but I had to keep fighting it because I picked it. :) Now I choose my battles carefully.
Twenty years from now you will be more dissapointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails, explore dream.
I'm too busy working on my own grass to notice if yours is greener. As far as I'm concerned, MY grass is greenest. Makes for a content life, and I like it that way! No keeping up with the Joneses' allowed in my house!
