Today, I realized how fuzzy my mind can really get. Some might even call it, absent-mindedness. This pic was taken today. Can you guess what is really in this image?
That’s how life can be. We are extraordinarily stretched. So too can be our perception. What is our reality, can be someone else’s insanity.
It’s the same with what I think I heard. Just recently I was on the phone chatting away, while waiting for my car to get fixed. The person on the other end was watching over my fur-kids. I heard: ‘they’re a problem.’ What was really said: ‘I’m having fun.’ How did I get that so mixed up?
Well, I don’t like being human, but there it is. I’m only human. Next time you find yourself berating yourself: DON’T. 🙏🏼
I was looking for a specific pic in my camera, and I found this: a bizarre distortion of my cactus, window, which is much bigger than shown, my salt lamp, and the heat stove. I don’t remember taking this, but it’s somehow perfect for my day today.
We can see what we think we’re seeing, but others may have a totally distorted perception of what we’re showing them. Even if I had intentionally set out to snap a pic of this scene, I would have not used it. As a matter of fact, the more I think about it, I wouldn’t have taken it at all. But here it is; God has an excellent sense of humor…
It’s also the same with words we say out loud. The one’s we intend for other people to hear. But, they can hear something all together differently. I find myself repeating what I said, and wonder if I didn’t say it clearly enough. But it goes both ways – I think I hear something clearly, and understand it, only for the other person to get frustrated because that’s not what they said!
Who’s right? Who’s wrong? Communication is a strange process. As humans, we rely on clear communication, but it doesn’t work out that way. I guess I’m thinking today is a day of distortion. And though God has an excellent sense of humor, I’m hoping it’s a day thing. I’ll even beg if I have to, and I never beg…
