Perception. For the past few days we have had Karen’s daughter, Becky, and her significant other, Tim, visiting us in Bermuda. It is Tim’s first visit so Karen drove them all around the island and visited some of the better known spots for tourists and places to learn about the island. On Friday evening our extended Bermuda family took us and others on a night cruises in Hamilton Harbour, the Sound, and into “Paradise Lakes”, a spot where islands create a “lake effect” and boats go to raft up and party. When you see Bermuda from the roads you often just see a lawn and a roof and that is what you feel Bermuda looks like. However, when you go out on the water the view is spectacularly different. What you see are nice homes with beautiful landscaping, docks, and often boats moored in front of these homes. It is a completely different view then the one you have seen from the road. How often do we fall into the habit of seeing things the same way all of the time? Do we take the time to consider the “view” from another angle or another perspective? Doing this can result in seeing things in a different light and maybe lead you to different conclusions and provide more options for you to consider. The next time you are faced with a decision remember to use the “view from the water’ approach, you may find it provides a better solution.
" For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin- real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one. Happiness is a journey, not a destination..."
