Is Your Vision Clear?

Seeing Life Through Different Eyes

I knew of an elderly woman who lived in a rickety old house that had paint peeling off the sides. Looking at her life, you would think she had little for which to be grateful. Yet, every day she took her folding lawn chair and sat for long periods of time in front of her house gazing across the yard. You see, she had previously strewn wild flower seeds all over the yard. Her yard was a field of multi-colored flowers. She did not wait for life to improve before she found its existing beauty.

Has Your Vision Blurred?

Many people let life’s setbacks and tragedies destroy their vision of the beautiful things in life. They only see where they have been, not where they are going. If you wait for life to become perfect before you enjoy it, your vision will blur. You won’t see the beauty that surrounds you.

Have a “Near-Life Experience”

Speech writer Charles Parnell said, “Too many people are having what might be called ‘near-life experiences.’ They go through life bunting, so afraid of failure that they never try to win the big prizes, never knowing the thrill of hitting a home run or even taking a swing at one.”

Thought for Today

Let your reality be that you live life every day looking for the good in it. Take pleasure in enjoying your life and the people in it.

Live Life,
