Forging a positive vision for the future
There’s a wall art word stencil in my living room wall that reads “learn from yesterday – live for today – hope for tomorrow”. It’s interesting how after all these years this quote still provides a constant reminder of such a simple yet powerful message. Each time I’ve reflected on this quote I’ve found the message and meaning seems to deepen a little bit more. Life has a way of presenting us with a constant flow of experiences that send us on a real time roller coaster ride. The ups and downs that we experience in life or what I like to refer to as periods of light and darkness is what gives our lives true meaning. What’s even more powerful is that when we consider the perception with which we look at each of these experiences, the meaning changes. Metaphorically, I like to think of perception like wearing glasses. Wearing one pair with lenses filtered through the energy of love versus another pair with lenses filtered through the energy of fear creates two completely different perceptions of the same experience. When we look at the experience of the current situation we are living and our vision for the future, the question I would pose is which pair of glasses are you wearing?
