101 things about me

Quote of the day...

I have not completed my current post and I have run out of time ... again!

Our discussions in Philosophy class last night were about perception and our view of ourselves and the world around us. Our take on reality and what is real. My Dad sent me a quote this morning. And so I thought I would share it.

"We do not see things as they are
- we see them as we are."
ANAIS NIN

Have a nice day!

We filter everything through our experiences, "is this positive or negative? What happened last time?"... That's why it is so much fun to teach children, if their experiences can be shaped in a positive way they will have all of the correct filters. They don't have a "last time" to relate to...
