Frame of mind

I came across a great quote yesterday; “We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.” – Anais Nin. While we here so much about how everything is relative, we need to be able to grasp the concept that the world is to be measured by that which we carry within ourselves. Our mood, frame of mind, hopes and ambitions filter how we expect our surroundings to be. If we expect only darkness, then it becomes difficult to recognize even the most brilliant beam of light which could provide hope. Keep an open mind, realize there are not only white, black, infinite shades of gray but practically an unmeasurable number of colored hues around us every moment. Keeping our hearts full of wonder and awe and treating each moment as being completely brand new and filled with awe is truly living.
