A famous quote by Henry David Thoreau reads, “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
We keep our eyes busy looking at people and things all day—people, computers, data, pets, food, trees, etc. But when you look, what do you actually see? Is the food on your plate an apple, or is it a fruit that was able to weather the cold winter on a tree that took almost 10 years to fruit? Are the people in front of you your children, or are they growing and changing teens struggling to find their independent voices?
When you truly stop and look at what and who are in front of you, you’ll likely see them differently. Slow down and take a breath. The next time you’re at work, having a conversation, walking through the city, or sitting on the train, move beyond simply looking. Go deeper and see the complex picture that each person, place, and thing brings to your life. You might just be surprised at what you discover.
