When the Fog Clears

November 2nd, 2015

Have you ever had those days when it seems like you are in a fog? Everything seems a little fuzzy and you find yourself unable to completely focus on anything?

Yesterday we had that in the literal since. Our entire area was covered in dense fog, and what normally would lift after a few hours of daylight, never occurred. Everything was darker and a little eerie. I went out for a few moments last night and even the night seemed more still- almost like something out of a horror movie.

There is something interesting about the fog though- it reveals things we don’t generally notice, such as just how many spider webs are lurking about, and the different, almost somber look the trees have when surrounded by the grey mist.

Today, the fog has cleared and we are left with a gorgeous Fall day. But as I look at the trees and the shrubbery, the somber replaced with sunshine, the spider webs hidden amongst the green shrubbery- I know that even though I don’t see it- doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

This same thing can be said about so many things in life. Not physically seeing or noticing something doesn’t mean it isn’t there in front of us, waiting to be discovered.

Have you noticed that we are constantly ‘plugged in’ and that by doing so, we create a fog with an overload of information? It’s something that’s easily ‘fixable’, but yet the pull for constant information keeps us from making that simple shift.

It’s something I’m working on, finding the perfect balance for me (which may be something totally different for someone else) that will keep me appreciating the perspective that the fog brings, but enjoying the sunshine a lot more.
