The way I see things

It is true

That we all are different

That we all see things uniquely

I have always had the ability to think out of the box

To perceive reality from an angle quite different from others

Is this an advantage or a handicap?

Sometimes I feel that it is an advantage because I can find solutions others can’t

And at other times, I fail to see the obvious unless it’s pointed out!

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “out of the box.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think “out of the box.” Enjoy!

Written for JusJoJan, and SoCS, hosted by Linda

  1. Perception is often an indicator of how we view life. When we break down our thoughts and feelings, we are often met with the realization that it is all about how we perceive things. I truly believe your ability to see outside of a box is an advantage! For people like me, who have never fit in a box, I can assure you we are very grateful for people like you!!

Mind you I also got an essay back with numerous ‘no’ written throughout – was surprised that I’d passed
