Last week, my sister and I were walking on the beach in Florida, picking up shells and things. The beach that we were on is known for its fossilized shark’s teeth. My sister has a finely tuned eye for finding them…I don’t. I was finding pretty shells and I remarked that you could either focus on one or the other. If you are looking for shells, you don’t find too many shark’s teeth and if you are looking for shark’s teeth you don’t find many shells. I was telling her how some of the blogs that I follow are written by people who like to collect heart shaped rocks and that I’ve never found one. She said that maybe it was like the people who can find four leaf clovers all day long and others can’t.
The next day I decided that I would look for heart shaped rocks on the beach. Within a period of about 30 minutes, I found over 15 heart shaped rocks. It seemed that almost every rock I looked at was heart shaped.
I started thinking that the same concept may apply to life. What you look for is what you find.
