Rose Colored Glasses
This is Gayla.
She is participating in one of my photo experiments.
Thank you Gayla for being such a great sport.
Looking through a rose colored glass reflects a distorted image.
The image is not at all what we see right before us.
Looking through this glass makes Gayla look less attractive.
It's not an ideal image.
Sometimes we go through life wearing rose colored glasses.
The only difference is when we walk around wearing rose colored glasses,
the distorted image actually appears much more attractive to us.
We are not seeing clearly and therefore we create this ideal image in our minds.
I don't want to walk around wearing rose colored glasses anymore.
I want to shed the false illusion and see clearly.
I think once I do, I will experience forward movement.
Because really, I'd much rather attract something real than an ideal in my head.
I'm ready to accept what it is I've been afraid to see.
The only thing I have to lose is the fantasy I've created.
