A matter of perspective

Today, I took out my disposable eye contacts and put on my glasses, to give my eyes a breath of fresh air. Carter naturally wanted to try them on. It didn't take him long to look down and the floor and say, "Woah, that's far away!"

I'm coming back days later to edit. 

On a grander scale, I see that this little scenario is an allegory for life. Isn't it true that the truth of what's going on around us seems skewed and off if we are not looking at it through the right lenses (or perspective)? Just the other day, I shared a link on facebook. It was to an article on Oprah's website called "How to be an Optimist." Here is is... Go take a look at it and then come back.

How to be an Optimist 

I don't know if he was being sarcastic or honest, but one friend's reply to this post was, "It's easy to be an optomist when you have Oprah-money."

Now I don't need to go any further, do I?
