March 28, 2011


Have you gotten caught up in the mundane trap that society has created of going off to work Monday through Friday, attending extracurricular activities after work and on weekends, and filling every available minute of your days with schedules and deadlines that you no longer see what is around you? How do you view the world and the people in it? Or don't you? Sometimes, it seems like we are rushing through this world merely existing and viewing everything around us through foggy goggles. Well, honey, take off those foggy goggles and view the world with a different set of eyes!

Once you slow down, and you start actually looking at your surroundings, you will notice that the world and everything in it is actually quite beautiful! Once you take off those foggy goggles, you will see that the sun shines brighter, the flowers bloom more vibrantly, and every color in this magnificent world is intensified by one hundred percent.

There comes a time in a person's life when he or she may have to look at things a little differently. For instance, if you are a person who is extremely hard on yourself and blames yourself for every little thing that might go wrong, maybe you are looking at yourself through foggy goggles. If you take off those goggles, maybe you will see that the problem does not reside within yourself. Maybe, the problem is due to someone else's negligence or maybe, just maybe, there isn't a problem at all. Maybe, you have come to expect a problem, because that is how you have been viewing your world through foggy goggles.

Embrace the beauty that the world has to offer! Slow down and enjoy your day! Remember that each of our days is a blessing, and we should never take one of them for granted! Love those who love you! And learn to look at the world as God created it to be looked at! Take off those foggy goggles and look at the world through new eyes!
