Perception

Our perception of things is what truly makes us different. We were all born different. We are all that way for a reason. Only the creator knows the true reasons behind our differences.

Perception Questions

In a world where most people can only see in black and white.
Are you one of the few that sees colors; reds, whites, and blues?
Do you wish for the world to see things through your eyes?
Do you wish to change the world?
Do you wish to make the world a better place for all?

Can realize that if your heart is so big that you wish to make changes,
Even the smallest good deeds you do, change the world from someone else point of view?
Do you realize that life is all in the way you perceive it?

Through the eyes of a poor man

You see me as poor
Not having lots of money.
I find this funny!
There is more to riches than money.

I have a wife whom I have been with most of my life.
We have a bond that grows deeper every day.
We pray in the same ways.
We will stay together until our dying days.

We do not have much.
We do have a roof over head.
We have a place to bed.
Our bellies are feed.

We lack many things.
But, not what our love brings.

I am poor in the point of little money.
I have had to endure many trials in my life.
I made it through with the help of my wife.
I am rich in love and understanding.

Brendamarie, thank you for sharing your article. I've always thought outside the box and it's a beautiful way to live. I don't see black and white but I do see rainbows of every color. Smiles to you tonight and always.

yes I wanted to change people for the good, but my life as a therapist was cut short when I got sick.

Carol, even though you are no loner a therapist, you still make a big difference with your writing. I have learned so much from reading your article.
