Do you know through who's lens you live your life?

Updated: Apr 10, 2022

There are three lenses through which to view life.

The past, present and future.

The past is over and yet we choose to live our life through that lens the most.

The present is here and now. Most people are either living in the past or planning for the future.

The future is promised to no one and yet we place all of our hopes and dreams in that space.

Have you ever taken a moment to reflect upon your life and take a close look at the challenges that have tainted it? You know the ones where a partner was unfaithful and now every person that you date is analyzed through that experience. Maybe, your parents fought for years, got a divorce and now you believe that relationships are pointless. Worse yet, someone said terrible things to you, you believed them and now you continue to live your life through their life lens.

The interesting thing is that yes, we have all experienced one, two or three of these challenges in life. However, life is not meant to be measured by our mistakes or that of others.
