Too Big or Too Small?

Seeds IX, 36

Seed: Too Big or Too Small?

Life is really all about perspective. I mean it, really. Brian Judd writing in Beyond the Bookstore says, “Some people looked at Goliath and thought he was too big to hit. David looked at him and thought he was too big to miss.”

Perspective is dear to my heart because I spent many years seeing physically without it. I’ve had four eye surgeries, and usually, depth perception was the last thing to return to my experience after surgery, hence my inordinate fondness for depth.

Depth is often what I bring to my clients. I am able to pull away from the emotional closeness that someone is experiencing and bring perspective to the situation. It’s often all that’s required for an end-of-the-earth situation to become a blessing-in-disguise situation.

Next time you face off Goliath, give yourself the gift of perspective, and if you can’t (if he’s too big to hit), get some help (turn him into too big to miss.)

Be serene,

Dr. Susan Corso
