So it's been a while since I posted for a while. Unfortunately I have had issues with my facebook.
Anyway I was thinking what I wanted to share with you all this fine evening and this is what came to me. I was looking through my pictures and came across this. You may be wondering what it is, even thinking that's a silly photo to use for a blog or why has she picked something that looks like a mess? Well the thing is sometimes unless we know what's going on, we make judgments based on only seeing a small picture. Some of you see mess and yes maybe there is some mess there. But others of you see a lot of sparkles and colour. While others of you see various shades of brown. Now all of you would be quite correct, but if each of you only saw one of those things you would still not be seeing the full picture shown here. But the thing is, even if you saw the full picture here you would still miss the point unless you looked beyond it. Because what was actually going on was that my friend had just had a special party to reveal whether their expected baby was a boy or a girl, so as you have now guessed it is a girl. But this picture doesn't do justice to the excitement that was on the faces of the parents to be and their friends on that day.
I wonder how many of us look at our lives like this, do we look at our lives and only see mess or darkness and hopelessness. And then do we look at our friend's lives and see only sparkles, joy and celebration?
What if we took.a step back and looked at the full picture? What if we stopped comparing ourselves to little we see of others.
Why not look at the full picture, celebrate the good, challenge the weakness and embrace the areas that need change.
