It's Not Easy Being Green?

I’ve always liked Kermit the Frog. I put him right up there with Piglet, Oscar’s pet worm Slimey, and Boober from Fraggle Rock. I just don't really get what the problem is with his color. Why is it hard for a frog to be green? Isn’t blending into his surroundings good for his safety? Aren’t a lot of good things green---money, plants, etc?

I know, this is a stretch, but think about it the next time you feel badly about something in your life. Is what you’re feeling badly about really bad? Is there some other way you could think about it that wouldn’t make you feel that way?

A great wellness example of this is diet---if you view a diet as difficult and undesirable, it will be. Period.

Most of our feelings are based on our perspective. If we think being green is bad, well then, it is. If we change how we look at something, it changes, and how we feel changes too---kind of like how Kermit changes his mind by the end of the song.
