Some Things | Vol. 29: Not As It Seems

“Why things are not always what they seem; first appearance deceives many, the intelligence of a few perceive what has been carefully hidden
Phaedrus, c. 444–393 BC
Everyone has a unique window into the world, no matter a person’s race, gender, status, or health. Our perception of reality is in a constant state of change & can be altered by something as substantial as how we are raised or our lifestyle, to something as trivial as how we are feeling on a particular day.
Perception creates our experience of the world but every person perceives the world & approaches challenges differently. 
The mind is strange in the way that it picks & chooses what it wants to see in the world. Here are some things to inspire you this week:
