Our time, our spotlight - however you choose to look at it - takes eight long minutes to reach our planet, relatively speaking. This light of the sun allows us to tell what hour and minute we fell in love to the year it transformed. All the colors in an impeccably radiant spectrum influences us in so many ways. But the only way to fathom any of this is to have an open mind. Having an open mind to many possibilities and opportunities to grow, is synonymous to seeing all the colors and welcoming them with open arms. As humans and as individuals we innately see situations differently. We view challenges from altering perspectives. Just as easy as it is to give an opinion or feel a way about something that causes concern, we can choose to view matters in a light other than the one we’re most accustomed to. That’s the magic of it all. Because once you are proactive and steadfast in learning more about the world around you, the evolution of your thought process initiates the expansion of your being.
