We’re all on a journey, one that has a beginning, middle and end. We kick, push and claw to get into this world and as we enter we emerge screaming at the top of our lungs full of zest to just be apart of this world that we know nothing about. We emerge from darkness and begin to explore this world with every sense we have…we touch it, taste it, hear it, smell it…always desiring more! We grow and see the world through the lens of our mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers…society becomes our ophthalmologist.
Somewhere in our journey our eyesight diminishes and we lose sight of the joy and splendor of exploring…the joy of discovery…the joy of being Alice in Wonderland. We begin to except that not seeing the fine print or that bottom-line on the eye chart is acceptable and we don’t even try…status quo becomes reality.
Perhaps it takes a traumatic event or the realization that we’re on the downside of the hill called life but hopefully we find that moment…that moment when we meet the Chesire Cat and ask him “Which way should I go” and he responds “It depends on where you want to get to!” An answer that hopefully, once again, gets us to ponder, what we want to discover…what we want to touch, taste, hear and smell…How we want to Live This Life!
