What Are You Seeing Around You RIGHT NOW?
Stop what you’re doing for a second. What do you see around you RIGHT NOW? I bet if you’re a busy mom like me, your eyes dart from the pile of abandoned puzzle pieces on the living room floor to the overflowing laundry basket to the dried up mud and dirt under the kitchen table. You sign, feel that wave of overwhelm, and you stop looking. Am I right? But what if you keep looking. For just a few seconds more. VSP® Vision Care has invited me to really stop and look at what is around me. At what my vision really allows me to see. And while the sight of my chaotic home might seem overwhelming and frustrating…
With a small shift in perspective, what I see becomes beautiful.
Those scattered puzzle pieces look like my preschooler learning from his older brother; like sibling love and cooperation right there on the dirty floor.
The clean clothes hanging out of that laundry basket look like an opportunity to connect and chat with my sweet daughter; she loves folding clothes with her mama.
And that dirt on the floor under the dining room table look like three siblings laughing and playing outside on a muddy day at their Mi-Mi and Pop-Pop’s house, but forgetting to take their shoes off when they got home.
Take a minute to really look – to see the blessings in the mess.
Working with VSP® Vision Care has helped me to see the blessing of good vision, too. Did you know…
- “One in four children has an undetected vision problem.
- About 20% of children struggle to read because of vision problems.
- Ten million American students have vision conditions that can impact learning.
These statistics make me realize how much of a blessing good vision is for myself and my children. And how I shouldn’t take the “mess” I am seeing around me for granted.
