A Beautiful Day

Monday, April 18, 2011

Sometimes changing the way you see things can have great results. Sometimes it's all about having the right perspective, as the story below shows.

An old blind man was sitting on a pavement. He had a poster beside him bearing the words "I am blind, please help." In front of him were some coins tossed by people passing by. Time went by and more people walked past him.

Only a handful were giving alms, until a woman came by. She reached out for the poster and began writing. The old blind man touched and felt her dark green heels. Once the woman finished writing, she put back the poster beside the old blind man and walked away.

This time though, more and more people were tossing more and more coins. At the end of the day, the woman with dark green heels came back. The old blind man reached out for the shoes, recognized it and asked the woman. The poster had a saying that goes, "It's a beautiful day, and I can't see it."
