When I sit at my dining room table looking out on the world I see this. I know that building in the background is a plain old Duplex/Condo with aluminum siding but with my blurry eyes and three or four leaf less trees in the way it’s easy to see a lovely English cottage instead.
A lot of my life is like that. I may know intellectually what I am looking at but I make the choice to see what I want to see. I adapt my surroundings to be what I want them to be. I see myself how I want to be. I think when I need to, I am perfectly able to see myself as well as my surroundings as they really are, I just choose to look past that most of the time.
Maybe it’s just a sign of a creative mind. 🙂
