When we see but a dim reflection of what could be, it can be easy to get discouraged by the how dull things seem to be and the fact that it feels like we are treading water; almost as though not only are we not going anywhere, but maybe in fact we are going backwards. It can be easy to get caught up in a sea of emotions and looking at that reflection so long that we don’t see where the reality of the real thing starts and the reflection begins. Maybe it is time to stop looking at a secondhand version of the real thing, to stop listening to other people’s views about how bad it is and to lift our eyes up to see the truth. Lift your eyes up and the crisp clear picture ahead. When we have our head down, it is easy to lose sight of where we are going. So, head held high and keep going towards the goal.
