Blinders On ~

We've all heard the old saying, he/she must have blinders on, but don't we all walk around with blinders on? If we're honest with ourselves, there are some things that we just refuse to see. It may be something about our significant other, our job, ourselves, our lives; regardless of what it is, we all have something that we absolutely refuse to see. And, why is that? Is it because if we take a close look at those things that we pretend we don't notice we may have to make a change? Or is it because we, as humans, are too complacent? Could it possibly be that we're lazy? Is it easier to just go with the flow then make a change? Or, is it our own fears that keep us wearing those blinders? I mean, after all, if we decide to change the things that we've been blind to then where does that leave us? Most people hate change. They fear change. I've thought about this a lot and I have come to the conclusion that the majority of us fear change because change forces us to look at ourselves. And, if we see things we don't like and still don't make changes, then what does that say about us?!


  1. You are so right on with your thoughts. Blinders force us to see only a narrow path but not the options that can make life interesting.

  2. Well said!
    Fear holds so many of us back. Isn't it interesting that as children we have NO fear, but as we get older we become afraid of everything?! What are we so afraid of? Can Failure be all that bad? Worse case scenario, you try and you fail, but it's better to fail at something than die never trying.
