“The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight but no vision.” ― Helen Keller “
The other day I woke up with a migraine. As my headache lessened my vision remained spotty. I felt dizzy and disoriented as the day progressed. I decided to go to the grocery store…talk about a joke. When the road became fuzzy, I knew something was wrong. I roamed up and down the aisles with products merging together and drifting away. Alas, I’d lost a contact lens! To top it off, I’d forgotten my grocery list. The hubby took a photo and texted it to me…not that I could read it! I did make it home safely and with all items purchased.
Have you ever not been able to see for looking? You know, looked for something in all the wrong places? Or perhaps looked to everyone else for answers when you held it yourself? I have, too many times to count.
This reminds me of the importance of keeping a clear head. Too often I jump to conclusions rather than letting things play out and seeing them for what they are. Things are not always as they appear. What are the facts and what are opinions?
It is also human nature to treat the symptoms rather than the cause. It’s imperative to go to the root of a situation if one wants lasting results. Again, it’s all about truth.
Today I plan to approach life with clear vision (with or without my contacts!).
I’m starting at the root…preconceived notions of inadequacy and simple procrastination.
I plan to do what I’ve been resisting. I’ve bundled the fear and tossed it out the window. I’ve rolled up my sleeves, and I’m digging in. I’ve decided to be friends with time and capability today. How about you?
