“Life Is Only a Reflection of What We Allow Ourselves to See” – Trudy Symeonakis Vesotsky October 8, 2015 / 10lewrites / 1 Comment Written for and Published in The Seeds 4 Life What kind of lens are you seeing life through? Is it the lens of bitterness? Reflecting a life of resentment and disappointments? Where anger bubbles on the surface and keeps your heart hardened? Is it the lens of contentment? Reflecting a life of joy and progress? Accepting this beautiful gift that’s life and extending your hand to journey with it? Is it the lens of fear? Reflecting a life of living so far from the edge, you can’t even feel the breeze of possibilities? Is it the lens of courage? Reflecting a life of opportunities taken and the growth experienced from jumping into faith? Is it the lens of victimization? Reflecting a life of pointing the finger at everyone and everything you have convinced yourself is at fault for where you are? Is it the lens of love? Reflecting a life of complete compassion? Compassion for yourself? Compassion for others? I ask you again? What kind of lens are you seeing life through? If it is one that is not fueling the constructive evolution of your being, change the lens. You hold the power in the vision and how life reflects back what you allow yourself to see.
