I recently wore contacts for the first time! Hubble Contacts is an amazing service that gives you daily contacts! This is my first time wearing contacts ever and they are a game changer! I never thought contacts were for me, but now that I have them I can’t go back! Here is a little back story, I was prescribed glasses probably 4 years ago, but I never wore them! I got so embarrassed because someone called me out for wearing “fake glasses” in high school! I felt so stupid, but couldn’t wear contacts because I didn’t know how to use them! I walked around not being able to see the person walking down the hall from me and trying to read the board was a joke! Why did I purposely choose not to be able to see? How did I let other people decide for me that I couldn’t wear glasses? As I look back on that experience I think there are 4 really great things we can learn from this experience.
1. How do you look at yourself?: If I had know who I was, if I was confident in who I am back then, I wouldn’t have cared what anyone thought! I recently decided it would be really important for me to sit down and decide who I am. How do I introduce myself, what do I like? What don’t I like? Even things as simple as how I like my eggs. As we decide who we are, our view can’t be skewed. When you look in the mirror, just like wearing contact for the first time, the answer is clear. You are who you believe yourself to be. So be great, be happy, and take risks, because the person starring back at you in the mirror deserves to be those things and only you can make that happen.
2. See things from another perspective: My friends with perfect vision, could see things that I just couldn’t! I would look off into the distance and see a blur where a word was, but they could read it out perfectly. As you see things from another perspective, you can change your situation and fix any problem that you may be facing. For me that new perspective meant finding a solution or walking closer to the object, it took longer for me to understand, or to see, but as I changed my point of view things were able to change for me.
3. Accept Your Weaknesses and Grow From There: There are tons of people who have 20/20 vision! Unfortunately, I am NOT one of those people! I will never be able to see like they do, that is just how I am! That is a weakness that I have. Once you realize your own weaknesses, that is when you can go about fixing them. For me it was contact lenses and glasses. Other weaknesses may require us to practice more patience, or to hold our tongue in an argument, but as we recognize this weaknesses we can come to better ourselves and grow from there.
4. Know where you are headed: The first time I truly realized that I had trouble seeing was when I was driving at night.. safe right? I was headed back from a long road trip from Arizona, when I realized I couldn’t make out what the signs were saying. This wasn’t all just my bad vision, it was incredibly foggy and that’s when I realized I didn’t know where I was going. If you don’t know where you are going, then as the Cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland says “then anywhere is the right direction.” If we have an idea where we want to go, if we are confident in who we are, then we will always end up on the right path.
As we really see and begin to understand who we are, our path becomes clear, our perceptions become truths, and our confidence begins to shine. If you need a little help on that path or an extra boost in confidence, give us a call!
