How easily we forget the grand and good stuff we have; and focus instead on the small imperfections or setbacks.

We train ourselves to notice the weeds growing amongst the lawn. So much so that we no longer see the lawn itself; no matter that the lawn is actually healthy, lush and what we have always wanted.

And so we break our backs weeding to precise perfection; and forget to savour the bloody lawn!
