To Blind to See!

Sometimes we want 

something so badly 

That we fail to see it when 

it is right in front of us.

We strive to achieve our goals and 

just before we reach them we give up.

We are so focused that we get tunnel vision

and the things that are happening around us 
are beyond our path of vision.

There are times when the grass on the other side 
seems so much more tempting than what we have.

Take a moment to stop and smell the coffee,

Value what you have, see the joy in each day.

Let me share a story I read;
“A tribesman was transported from a remote mountain wilderness (a society that had not yet discovered the wheel) to a large city. When he returned, he reported that the most significant thing he saw was somebody using a wheelbarrow to carry more bananas than he ever thought possible. He literally did not see the significance of automobiles and skyscrapers. He was not prepared to see them.”
