OPPORTUNITY AND PERCEPTION

August 13th, 2011

 

“”The grass always  looks greener on the other side” may or may not be true with many variables to consider  with each individual case.  
Opportunities usually look bigger going than coming”  

 Don’t forget their are other pebbles on the beach. 

To get a clearer perception, one must be able to be simultaneously close to the subject under investigation  and still be able to examine it at a distance with an open mind in order to have a healthy sense of discernment.  But distant perception alone is not enough. It must be matched by a detailed close-up understanding of the challenge or opportunity  at hand. It is the ability to freely adjust, assess and compare the close-up and distant views that constitute free perception.

Opportunities are not always about money although money is a tangible way to measure some. The two important functions of “money” are as a measure of value (or unit of account) and as a medium of exchange.  

 Every day we all receive the same amount of time.  Every day we can choose to view our situation with gratitude or regret.  Every day we can stop and see the good around us.  Hey, it isn’t always easy.  We all have times when we feel like we are powerless over so many different situations and people  that are beyond our immediate control that it can be frustrating and downright discouraging but as the saying goes: “don’t ever give up”    Tomorrow’s  another day.

Or in the case of a relationship gone sour you may hear one of the parties   say: “thank God and Greyhound he or she is gone”  :)  That can be a 2 way street too you know.

And as Alexander Bell so aptly expressed it: ” when one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us”  So again, keep an open mind but not so open that your brains fall out.

 Bye for now,

-Meg
