When people come of a certain age, things start to change. The hair may turn a little grey. The wrinkles may become more prominent and increase in number. The joints may become stiff. These are all signs of aging. While we recognize these things most in older people, we are all going through transitions in life. Toddlers experience teething and walking. Teens experience growth spurts and acne.
Young or old, there may come a time when your vision changes or grows weaker. Some people choose to wear contact lenses, while others opt for glasses. Whichever the choice, the end goal is to create clearer vision and better focus for the wearer.
Some people require a stronger prescription and have the need for glasses called bifocals. Bifocals, as there name suggests, gives the wearer two ranges of vision. The special lenses allows them to see things close up as well as far away, thus giving the wearer the most optimal range of vision.
In order to be successful I suggest that we ALL be ‘bifocal’. This suggestion has nothing to do with wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses. My suggestion refers to the ability to see more than one thing in life. While it is easiest for most of us to see the things that are closest to us like problems at work or financial issues, you must improve your ability to see far away.
- Look at what’s close by, but ‘see’ what’s far off
- Choose the direction that’s best for you
- Don’t let what you see now deter you from what you can’t see far out
The things we see up close are a part of life. Some things are inevitable and must be accepted. What you do have control over is what you do after those things. The things far away that you may not be able to see clearly (proverbially speaking) will be affected by the past, but it doesn’t have to be defined by it. You have the ability to direct what will happen in the future. That’s why it’s unclear. You define what it will be. You know something is out there, but you can make up your own idea of what it is and what it will be when you get closer.
The great thing about it all is that what’s far away from you is never just a straight line, or a tunnel. It you don’t like what you see as you get closer to it then turn toward another direction. Maybe you should look up. In any event remember all you have to do now is get there. If all else fails, imagine you’re blind. Blind people can always see whatever they want!
