I noticed this clip on my Facebook feed and thought it had a great lesson.
It brought to mind the story of a father and son watching a parade. The son was perched on his father’s shoulder.
At the end of the parade, the father remarked about the great parade and performances. ‘What performances dad?’ – his little son asked quizzically. ‘I was looking at the cool trucks that were passing by.’
We go through any experiences in company but we often forget that our responses to situations depend greatly on our view of the world. We an choose to by unhappy and cynical or not. We can choose to be ‘judger’, or make the switch to ‘learner.’
It really is a world full of choices and options. If we don’t see it, it’s time to look beyond the horn that’s blocking our view.. :)
