Things aren’t always as they appear…

When I first saw this picture I felt a little scared because I imagined myself walking down those stairs. When I took a second glance at the picture I started laughing because I realized it was a mirror on the stairs because I saw the picture of the clouds in the mirror. Do we always think to take second glances in life or question why we believe the things that we do?

I really love this quote. (Do you see why? haha)

Don’t believe everything you read on the internet just because there’s a picture with a quote next to it.

-Albert Einstein

What if certain things in our life that we whole heartily believe to be true are full blown lies?

When we were little kids we easily believed in Santa Claus, the Easter bunny, and the Tooth fairy. I mean why in the world would we question that our parents might be lying about this flying person that comes into our rooms at night to retrieve our teeth?? That would be ridiculous ; )

We easily  believed and trusted our parents when we were little. This has a whole new level of importance however outside of Santa Claus, the Easter bunny, and the Tooth fairy…

Because….

Little boys and little girls want nothing more than to be like someone they admire.

If a mother is constantly criticizing her own body and constantly dieting that little girl or little boy might think that their worth is in what they are/or aren’t eating.

If a father is constatnly criticizing his son for liking to paint instead of loving football, that son may start thinking that something is wrong with himself and start pleasing his father by playing football even though he is completely miserable playing football.

Things aren’t always as they appear. Some things we believe might be complete lies. This is very important to realize because I think that we all have instances like the little girl or little boy that have shaped us into who we are.

Ask yourself these two questions tonight:

Who has influenced/encouraged me to be who I am today? What did these people do to influence/encourage me?

What is the driving force in my life?

Be Fervently Driven
