…i can see your house from here

As I was taking a trip with the family, we drove through the mountains of PA. For those that have taken a trip across this state, it’s partially awesome and mostly annoying….great views and terrible road closures/delays.

As we were driving over a massive bridge, I looked from side to side . I began to take in the majesty of the trees, mountains and towns below (while listening to my favorite Spotify playlist)…thinking all in the van were asleep. To my surprise, my six year-old proclaimed, “daddy, I can see the whole world from here!”

Now, I know that this kid is smart enough to understand that there is more to the world than what is around her. I imagine, it was the best creative proclamation that she could muster in order to convey her feelings.

Perspective is something that I feel very passionate about…very passionate. Did I mention how passionate?

How many times in our daily lives do we react to a situation or interact with those around us with blinders on to what’s beyond? Better yet, how often do we take the time to ensure that our response is appropriate to the situation?

Enjoy the moment, take in what is around you – but realize that there is so much more…just takes time, effort and desire to seek it out.

..make wise choices,

    I love childlike wonder and enthusiasm. I also support your idea of our using blinders in our daily lives. How we need to get beyond them, how we don’t always see the whole picture when we react to things. It is our human side, though, and we can work on that!
