The Lens Through Which You See Life

What do you see?

Thrive invites voices from many spheres to share their perspectives on our Community platform. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team, and opinions expressed by Community contributors do not reflect the opinions of Thrive or its employees. More information on our Community guidelines is available here.

Look up.

Look around.

What do you see?

How far does your sight reach?

Wall to wall, corner to corner, beyond the horizon.

This is your perspective, your lens, your illusion.

Now move an inch to the right or the left.

What changes?

Is it still all the same or is something different?

Whose eyes are those that you see through?


Or those of fear, prejudice or love?

Or are they of the past or perhaps, of a future yet to come.

You could travel ten thousand miles in any direction; the scenery may change.

Yet will your eyes see anything different?

The lens you choose shows what you want to see.

Now, look up again.

Look around.

What do you see?
