Take a minute to watch the video below, which is meant to test your awareness.

The video’s purpose is to remind us to pay attention to cyclists on the road.  I like the statement after the video that says

its easy to miss something you’re not looking for

I failed miserably in noticing what was actually in the picture as I was only paying attention to what I thought was the purpose of the exercise. 

How much do we miss when we’re caught up in our endless thoughts or only see what we’re looking for, rather than making room for all the other possibilities?
