It’s All In Our Perception


I was taking my daily walk when I passed an elementary school playground with children at recess. “You’re lucky!” a young girl shouted to me. “Why do you say that?” I smiled back. “Because you’re free to take a walk and I’m stuck in school!”

I thought that her perception was so interesting because just before passing her I was feeling kind of old, thinking that these children had their whole lives in front of them. Both the little girl and I were noticing what someone else possessed and what we lacked. I quickly turned my thoughts around and appreciated the beautiful day, the energy I felt, the love in my heart, the bird singing in the tree and I realized it is all about perception.

What do you want to focus on; What you lack or what you have?
