Entry 65: Perspective
Today I was showing this little kid (my brother's friend) a LEGO mini car garage. I was proud to show them my creations so they could play with them, but the little kid looked at this creation and mentioned that it would look cooler if it had a spare tire in it.
What car shop doesn't have a spare tire to fix cars? None! I was busy building it a certain way that I never thought about adding this minor, yet essential, item.
I have also started working at Goodwill as a retail associate (textiles), and the organization of the place is unbelievable. Everything is organized by gender, type, size, then color. When given the opportunity to colorize everything into a rainbow, I was ecstatic. I love organizing by colors! I do this every time I eat Skittles or draw with markers. And now my job is to do what I love to do? Awesome!
But others at my job don't see it this way. One co-worker gets almost depressed when she has to re-organized the entire floor each night, again and again. In my mind, I'm glad everything gets disorganized, because it gives me a chance to organize again. If everything stayed perfect, then some of us wouldn't have jobs.
This week, I had a conversation with someone about the "joys" of life. Some people love to explore the world, escape from their house, and eat stuff while they're still moving. I, on the other hand, enjoy creating worlds, rest peacefully at home, and enjoy a nice mango.
In short, all aspects of life seems to be viewed from all angles. This is especially true about movies; two people can watch the same movie at the same time and experience a totally different movie than the other would. This past weekend I re-watched Jurassic Park for the hundredth time and I just realized they were putting the raptor in the Raptor Paddock in the beginning of the movie (I just thought they were moving the raptor into a random building).
But all these perspectives contribute to a larger picture that would be bland without views from every person, because that's what makes life interesting.
