I feel our eyes can be both a blessing and a curse. We all want to leave a great first impression with others when we are going on a job interview, going on a first date or any encounter that will influence our presence. How well we look, speak and act can either leave people thinking highly of us or not. However, sometimes our eyes can deceive us. We can be quick to judge and see only what we perceive as faults in someones appearance.
Observations leaves room for looking deeper and beyond the outward appearance. We are already closing ourselves off to someone when we judge how they look. If we were visual impaired, what would be the first impression then? Would we listen with keen ears to hear their qualifications and how well they are a match with your company? Would you be more aware of how you feel around their presence? What would be the guiding light to help determine if someone is leaving a great first impression? The gift of sight is a marvelous blessing, however we must use this gift wisely and not judge someone strictly on outward appearances. Their energy, habits, values and actions need to speak louder than their looks. Leaving a great first impression is important but do not overlook the person hiding under the mask. Observation is strength and judgement is weakness. Do not let your eyes deceive you.
