Antonio de Mairena
from Juan de Mairena
To see things as they are, the eyes must be opened; to see things as other than they are, they must be even wider; to see things as better than they are, they must be open to the full.
At a recent family meeting my wife came up with the idea of each of us thinking of three positive things that happened that day or the previous day. We started this morning when I sent an email with my three things to her, and my son (16) and daughter (18). So far, my wife has replied with her three.
It felt weird, but it felt good. I had to open my eyes wider.
We are trying to get out of a rut.
