Vision is a powerful word whether it refers to the ability to see and plan into the future or the ability to see what lies before our very eyes at any given moment. For without it we are blind, robbed of one powerful sense, and must feel and hear our way through life, not knowing what lies ahead. Without vision we neither can see nor dream, and how different life would be, how differently we would experience the beauty of life!
Our perspective on everything would be different as vision colors our perspective on life. We’ve all heard of seeing life through rose-colored glasses – an expression of how our perspective also changes our vision when we are in love. For we are quick to take note of how beautiful life itself is when we are so deeply in love. And in this manner perspective and vision are intertwined. For in love, we envision a very different future for ourselves compared to when we are not in love but single and searching or simply enjoying life on own.
And so it goes, this vision, this dream of life and all it has to offer – it keeps us going through thick and thin, through the joys and darkness that envelop our days and nights. It motivates us to push onward, to better ourselves, and to really look at life in all its colors that brighten our lives with such things as deep blue skies and vibrant flowers.
I dare you to think of life without vision for a moment. What would you miss the most? Surprisingly, it makes you realize what’s really important to you – what you tend to value the most in life be it motivation, simply dreaming, or seeing the faces of your loved ones as they grow and change in the face of vision itself.
