a new view

It's possible to become numb to the familiar. To look but not really see, to listen without hearing, to simply go through the motions at home and work and out in the world without really feeling a bit of it in your heart. All of the little details we take for granted in everyday life that are really such blessings. The stuff that matters. Try things differently today. Focus on the familiar as if you've never encountered it before: that beloved face across the breakfast table, the view outside your office window, the trusty car that gets you from here to there, all of the people and places that make up your daily round. See what a difference fresh eyes make.
