The other day I was parking my car when I was told “Don’t park there. You’ll need to make room.” They didn’t say what to make room for, just make room. I wondered, for what, a delivery, an ambulance, someone more important than I? That has been nagging at me; that comment. Sometimes we all need to make a little room. We need to de-clutter our thoughts and pull back to make room for the big picture. It is hard in day to day life to zoom out, as Photoshop would put it, and look at things from a different perspective. We get so caught up in details and clutter. Yesterday I was thinking about how excessively tired I was and that I am suffering from a cold. Then I talked to a friend who has fought a huge battle with breast cancer, and now, she has to have another surgery. I thought immediately how blessed I am and felt ashamed for complaining about a little head cold. I was getting my hair cut and my hair dresser talked about how lonely she is lately. She doesn’t have a significant person in her life right now. I had been thinking how much I don’t feel like cooking the traditional Thanksgiving meal. Now I feel so blessed to have a family to cook it for, no matter the amount of work and cost. It’s time to zoom out and look at things from a wider lens. We all have such blessings in our lives. Let’s count them and forget the details.
