How big is your world?

“The world only exists in your eyes. You can make it as big or as small as you want.” ~F. Scott Fitzgerald

Look around, and you’ll notice that the happiest and most interesting people are those who stay fully engaged with the outside world. I’m talking about the ones who get out of the house, stay physically active, make an effort to expand their social circles, and indulge their curiosity. They’re not sitting on the couch waiting for someone to call. And you’ll rarely catch them randomly scrolling for social media updates on their cell phones; they’re so busy doing something that they simply don’t have time.

Today’s quote suggests that we have the power to design or redesign the world we want to live in. Do you want to be insular or expansive? Is your world bigger than your cell phone? ~Cindy La Ferle
