“Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”― Roald Dahl
Perception is reality. We all have our filters on the world around us, and we purposely dampen out stimuli so that we are not overwhelmed.
Some people focus on the concrete reality, the greyness of the environment because they see in monochrome. Some people notice the flowers, and the faeries dancing on them in all of the splendid colors of the rainbow. Both are correct, but the one that sees the magic in the world around them lives a brighter life.
