Bend and Adjust

hollyhock seedsGet down on your hands and knees and look at the tidbits that nature drops at our  feet. When you look at hollyhock seeds up close, you’ll notice symmetry and flair that you can’t see when looking down at the plant.

This is often the case with most things in our world. From one position, an issue may seem totally clear and understandable … and yet, by moving  to the other corner, listening patiently or asking questions the issue becomes more.

When we meet people, our first impression is often what we rely on – but can often be incorrect. Like viewing nature, we must  be willing to bend and adjust to see another viewpoint. If we don’t …we’re stuck with seeing what everyone else sees, agreeing with their opinions and living in the shadow of someone else’s views. There’s no YOU in that path and the invisible YOU has nothing to offer.

Know what I’m talking about? Ever meeting someone who mimics the ideas and thoughts of the so called pundits  but  has nothing unique to share?

    There are always two sides to each coin, two sides to every story. We must always be prepared to look at the whole picture.
    Thanks for the reminder, Marge!


  2. Hi Marcia, I love when people share new ideas with me. It’s easy to see when people are just repeating what others are saying or writing. Give me a new idea. Paint me a new picture. Draw me a new map… is that asking too much?


  3. Yes, I know a few people like that. I’m trying to let my personality come through my blog, trying NOT to mimic, thanks for sharing this post.


  4. When I find a post that is alive and fresh and includes personal tidbits and personality then I am intrigued and want to read more. Even if it’s ho hum stuff to begin with if the person includes a story … I’m hooked!
