Rose Colored Glasses

In response to the daily prompt.

Have you ever heard the expression about seeing the world with rose-colored glasses? I remember the first time I heard it when I was a child. I was, in fact, told that I shouldn’t see the world with rose-colored glasses.

The purpose of this warning from my mother, as my protector, was to help me survive this earth. It was a harsh but necessary lesson. There is much to be weary of here.

I believe the Earth is a place of growth but our healthy, loving advancement has been compromised by greed, jealousy and anger. For that reason we must teach our children to protect themselves while they are young. Once we reach maturity; however, we need to recognize when we are safe and return to our natural state, that of love.

In other words, seeing the world with rose-colored glasses is indeed a detriment while we learn what life on earth is all about, but once we are in a safe place where we can reasonably protect ourselves, it is a necessary filter.

Everyone does the best they can with what they have; everyone makes mistakes; and everyone wants to return to love.

The next time you notice yourself being judgmental of other’s actions, or your own, put on your rose-colored glasses and look for the love.

The more of us that practice this, the more love will be present here on Earth.

  1. This a lovely read. Thought provoking, indeed.

    Question, more of a musing… We live for so long trying to learn and figure out this thing called life, from a very young age. By the time we are feeling safe enough to let our guards down, our perception of a “natural state” being where we can love freely, would have changed, no? I say that because we are taught to be protective early on in life, and not to love and look for love in everything…
    Just a thought.
