Dinosaurs Part 2

After I started to learn about dinosaurs, I learned they're everywhere! They're everywhere! I started to hear about dinosaurs from all sorts of places like a travel magazine and a newspaper. I learned for instance, that there are many places in Texas where dinosaur fossils can be viewed either still in the ground or on display in a variety of venues.

Now, here's the thing. Dinosaurs have been around for millions of years. Most dinosaur fossils are still a part of the surrounding rock. So they are not going anywhere anytime soon. Nothing about dinosaurs changed. Dinosaurs were not suddenly the latest fad, the latest news. What changed was my awareness of them. Why did this happen? Because I expanded my boundaries. I immersed myself in the study of dinosaurs for a few hours each day and in doing so I then was able to zero in on a photo or article that had anything to do with dinosaurs. It was an amazing experience. I allowed myself to see. 

What do you see? What do you want to see? If you allowed yourself to say a dream out loud, would your awareness of ways to live that dream unfold? I challenge you to try.
