“View life through a wide-angle lens attitude and see your horizons broaden.”
― Stephen Richards
Looking for that moment of clarity. Can you see it? It might be time to change your lens. “It” may have a different meaning for each of us. I’ve been looking for something, but I’m not quite sure what it is. It can be pretty frustrating because I know something is there, but I just can’t see it. I can’t grasp it. So at this point in my life, I’m searching for clarity.
There are many devices that were created to improve or enhance our vision. Our natural eyes were created with the highest quality, but without certain devices it’s impossible to see many places and the depth of certain situations. .
Sometimes in life we need to examine ourselves closer and other times we need to take a step back and see things from different angles to reach another level of focus, clarity, and vision.
• Goggles help you see underwater. You might need to wear your goggles to see where you’re going through tears, pain, or disappointment.
• Glasses/Contact lenses help to see objects in front of you closer or further away. If you’d just put your glasses on, what you’re searching for is probably right in front of you or could possibly take you a little longer to reach.
• A Magnifying glass helps you to something closely. Many decisions require you to look beyond your current view, you have to get down on your knees to get close up to see what’s really there.
• A telescope helps you to see something very far away even further than a pair of binoculars. We have to learn to look beyond our current circumstances to see our potential for the future.
• A Microscope helps you to see things that are smaller than the naked eye can comprehend. We can be looking for something big when what we need is already in our hands; it was just too small to see.
• A Periscope is a lens used on a submarine to see far below sea level. The quest for clarity requires digging such as research, exposure, and soul-searching.
• An ultrasound is a lens used to take medical images of the body. Clarity requires pushing through what you see, hear, and know to see what is really beyond the surface.
Earlier in the week, I posted this thought on FB.
I realized I was looking at my situation with a telescope when I really needed a microscope in my hands. What I needed was right in front of me, I just needed to take actionable steps to truly see it. What situations have you been looking at with the wrong lens? Pick up the right one and take action!
Have a great weekend!
