I'm not going to number my blogs anymore. Once you get passed 5 or 6 you start losing track of the days............
Whats your first reaction to this picture?
It's interesting that over 70% percent of the people who saw this photo initial reaction was a negative one - mine included. Maybe it was an illness or injury or death. A severe economic disaster? The hands are folded and the fingers pointing towards heaven, perhaps in a prayer that begins, "Dear God, you have to help me......" (Been there done that, on a regular basis I might add.)
But what if...........
The phone rings in 15 minutes and a client wants to pay me a boat load of money for a seminar? Joan has a super interview this afternoon on a job she has been after for a long time? What if I start sprouting hair?
"Living with something I didn't plan...."
Should it have a happy face beside it to add an alternative meaning?
Maybe those hands are folded together and behind them a head is bowed in Thanksgiving.
It is all a matter of perception, what we expect and how we expect it to impact our lives. No, I'm not a bloomin' idealist but the longer I live and the more I see, the more I realize that my life is simply a matter of how I see it and react towards it.
So I thought that was interesting and I wanted to share it with you because it caused me to stop and think.
