So I'm not much on trending current events - but I happen to land in the middle of this one by Chance?! THE DRESS - I found myself driving and listening to, yes, 105.3 ESPN - and there was some discussion about the dress - mind you it was 8:30 pm and I had NO idea what they were talking about. I just didn't want to hear another bad rendition of .... whatever song was playing. I arrived to pick up our daughter and a friend sent me a link with a picture saying what color is this - I thought we were choosing new dance costumes - HA! -- I looked and said blue and brownish gold - she said black, I said OK - keep in mind it is now 9:15 pm and I am sure I am the only one left on the face of the northern hemisphere that does not realize that THIS DRESS is actually a hot topic of debate!
With my husband out of town I begin to do a little late night/early morning social media crawl - and there is THAT DRESS! I start to research the if, ands, and whys and discovered!!! IT'S good to be right!
Now that we have established I was right .......again..... my conclusions are and go along with the conversation I Continually have with my 18 year old. It's all about perceptions. People will not always see things the same way - people are not coming from your point of view. People do not know your wounds and you do not know theirs. Perception - it's how we view things and how others view us. It's the tone we take - its the way we stand - its the look on a face or the movement of a hand. Perception - what do you see - how do you see it - maybe the picture has more depth of color than we are aware -
The next time you are sure you are right - Stop and consider - could the person I am interacting with being seeing the situation through a different lens.
You may discover - you are all right - just standing at a different view point.
And know this - “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole
body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole
body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness,
how great is that darkness!" – Matthew 6:23-24
Here's a great little read on perceptions -http://www.jeremybinns.com/perceptions-series/
I really think it's not about the color but how it looks on the wearer....... if you could rock that dress the color is not important.
