Shift in Perspective

A few days ago, my daughter approached me in the dining room, asking, “Do you see it?”

“See what?”

Forget Old Man and the Sea, my kid was asking if I saw the old man in the curtains.

I shook my head in disbelief as I leaned in to have a closer look. We’ve had these curtains for years. All it took was the imagination of my nine-year-old to introduce a whole new feature to the toile scene.

Remember the drawing of an old lady and a young, “pretty” one? Now my mind plays this trick whenever I walk into our dining room. My child instilled a shift of perspective.

Are you allowing things in your life to open your mind to unique possibilities? You never know what you could find.

Do you see it?
