Day 186: i can see clearly now the blur is gone

5 Jul

I can see clearly now.
My new trial contacts just arrived in the mail from my eye doctor and wooo weee do they make it easier to see.

I had no idea how blurry my life had become.
Until now.

Isn’t that always the case?
It takes a newer, clearer, more focused lens in order to see just how cloudy and murky the old one was, and, once you get your hands on that new lens it’s so hard to deal with the old one again.

I find it true of my eye-sight and previous jobs, living situations, food choices, even clothing styles (nothing against leg warmers and neon pink, it was the clear choice back in 1982, it’s just so not the right one for me now).

With my more focused vision I am seeing the world around me in a new light … and new dust particles too.   Suddenly I see every fleck of ick and it’s hard to ignore.  The world was a much cleaner place when my eye-sight was a little bit blurrrrrrred.

I rather prefer the world not screaming at me to dust it.
But I can’t go back now.  There’s something refreshing about seeing “all obstacles in my way.”

Age old dilemma isn’t it?
To see or not see …that is the question.

Kind of reminds me of how much I’ve “seen” so far through The Promise 365.

What about you?
Are there changes or promises you’ve made that will forever change the way you see the world?

While you ponder that, take a view at this music video by K.T. Tunstall.
I have it saved on my iPhone and for some reason the song has a mind of its own.  It will start playing in the middle of the day at random, like at the grocery store blaring from my purse, or in a meeting screaming from my bag, or while I’m brushing my teeth, reviewing the mail, or starring off into space.

Maybe that song is trying to tell me something?
Yeah …it’s not quite clear.

Here’s KT’s video:

If your rain is gone, here’s Johnny Nash promising a bright, sunshiny day.
