Blind to What I Don’t Need

I see fine.  Okay, I need some contact lenses to help me see fine, but I see fine.

I have had a few lectures lately that have addressed blind spots – blind spots to strengths, blind spots to personality, blind spots to family, blind spots to many aspects of life.

For the most part, I know what I need.  I know what I need from people.  I know what I need from my students.  I know what I need from myself, from God, from most everything.

I titled the post, Blind to What I Don’t Need, but the more I think about it, what I really wanted to communicate is that sometimes we can be Blind to What We Don’t Know What We Need.  Does that even make sense?

There are things in life that are blind spots, but I’ve been trying to figure out what those things are that I need – that I’m blind to.  It’s one thing to know what you need, but to not know what you need and be blind to it, that’s a scary situation to be in.

What do you think?  Do you know what you need?  Are you blind to what you don’t need?
