It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.

Perception is a funny thing
It’s not reality, just your version of it.

Often distorted and shaped by your own bias
A dose of cognitive dissonance, justifying the world to yourself and transforming it into your own image.

Your own story
Your own version of events
Your own heaven and your own hell.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Perhaps your time is better spent washing away the grime –
Purifying your heart, so it can see more clearly.
So you can start looking at things and know them for what they are.

Because I can guarantee you this.
If you go on seeing only what you want to see – 
You’ll eventually find whatever it is you’re looking for, whether it was there or not.

Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.

  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
