Different Horizons (2014- Blog #45)

Saturday, February 15, 2014

"We all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon."
Konrad Adenauer

Spark certainly embodies this quote for me. Each day online, I learn something that impacts the way I think. The most powerful, as I think I have said before, is the myriad of blogs and spark pages. Here is a bit how I see this quote.

We all have the human condition in common - that condition that has us taking care of a physical body. We all have in common a need to make sure we are healthy. And yet, the way we each get to "healthy", the way we each perceive the journey, the way we each struggle along the route... does not all come from the same perspective.

The fortunate thing is that with the magic of Spark, we can learn from each other, learn what the other horizons are... Sometimes this helps us. Sometimes this challenges us. Either way, learning what the other horizons are is powerful.

Here's to a day checking out the other horizons!

"We all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon."
Konrad Adenauer

MANTRA: Every opportunity is a choice. Every choice is an opportunity. (me)

    I have certainly benefited from you sharing your own "horizon"... and love that mountain that is out there on it every day, in your photos on the blogs!
