They say that perception is reality. When I’m in the middle of a crisis, I think they are crazy.
Sometimes life places an insurmountable boulder on our path.
Not sure about you, but when faced with a large rock formation, it’s tempting to tuck and roll downhill. Dangers lurk, after all… and in those moments I find comfort in knowing that at least going backward, I’m sure to eventually reach the safety of the trail head.
But, they are right… Perception is reality. Like hindsight being 20/20, if you take 5 steps back, you often see that it wasn’t a boulder… but rather a stepping stone. Stepping stones are simply little boulders that allow us to get to the other side.
Boulder or stepping stone? Perception is reality.
