    I think this is the value of creativity and why society desperately needs artists…to draw unexpected answers and ideas from the same information that everybody else has.

    Yes, it’s all in the mind. How you see things. 🙂

      Sometimes it depends on the heart as well. It comes naturally when it’s in the heart; a choice when it’s the mind. Bless your good heart 🙂

  3. I love the potential this quote has for our lives. Everyone is given hope that they can make a significant discovery each and every day.

    This makes me think of so many different things. Traveling and “discovering” something that so many have seen, yet it is new and exciting for me. When I am amazed by something that surely no one else has been as amazed by….

      I know the feeling! Some people are amazed with my amazement for seemingly simple things. They find me weird but I find myself happy and thankful for my discoveries 🙂
