People say it doesn't, but they are wrong. No not for THAT! But it does make a huge difference in a lot of other things.
Like perception. Remember the starfish you just saw at the top of this post. Well without anything to give it perspective it's pretty hard to tell how big it is. Right?
It's on a seawall in the town that Jan Lyons grew up in, called Clogherhead. Which, true to my own preferences was very small. It was part of the great Irish Adventure Tour they took me on that spanned two weekends of staying with them when I was in Dublin.
I now wish I'd made that trip earlier on. But I admit I was concerned I would be afraid in Dublin because it's so big. It is a big city, but like everything else you adjust to your neighborhood and all is well. And knowing Jan and Kevin were just a busride away made it all the easier to settle in.
It's always good to realize where you fit, and what fits you!
