Bit of Happy #88: What Do You See?

27 Jan


One of the coolest things I’ve ever witnessed:

Ice storm of 2009 (or at least, it makes for great photography!)

“Look at everything as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time.”
-Betty Smith

Whether looking through novice eyes or ones filled with wisdom, the way you choose to see the world around you is solely up to you. Commit yourself to a life of appreciation, of wonder and of possibility. Why? Well through my eyes, this creates a world of magic, each turn through this journey is new and different. It hones your ability to pay attention to detail. It brings the important things in life into perspective. It encourages you to treasure each moment your heart continues to beat.

I love this quote by Betty Smith because it is a reminder to soak in our surroundings as though we’ve never seen it before, or as though we will never have another chance to see it again. May we make this promise to ourselves. May we wear this new set of eyes throughout each and every day. May we spread its important message to others. After all, who is to say we can’t? Why can’t we view everything as though we are seeing it for the first or last time? What is stopping us?
