Magic Eye

Sometimes as I think about my life, a mental shift happens, like when you’re looking at a Magic Eye picture. Suddenly, my focus settles on the hurt, the pain. The rest of my life fades back and all I can see and feel is the sadness. Today, I woke up to a day already colored by the perception in my head and everywhere I looked, I saw wounds. I know this feeling is not reality, but a warped awareness and skewed vision I have from recent hardships. I know the rest of my life is there, full of joy and hope. I’ve been here before, waiting for the light to shift and the full image to appear. Part of that happens through intentionally redirecting my focus, and part of it is just a matter of time. So I grimly headed into my day and wait. Tomorrow I want to wake up and see my life for what it really is . . . a magic eye picture of excitement and passion surrounded by hope and the reality of renewed strength. And so we all move forward with blurred vision.

Sometimes we get dragged down by the painful things in our lives. The good will shine through though, our families, our hopes for the future, our friends, the things we love to do. These things will outweigh the pain and help us to soar again.

The key to one thing in life is one simple thing. Choice! We can choose to be sad, happy, optimistic, pessimistic but the one constant in the universe is that we do have the power to choose what path we wish to take. Make no mistake, there is no wrong path, make the decision and take responsibility for what comes next. Accountability, honesty with ourselves allows for personal growth and satisfaction. We are on this world for such a short time period that every day is precious and should never take for granted that things will go as planned, hoped or expected.
