This season, Finn has been in a bunch of sports.
He’s doing baseball and soccer.
Baseball is a little slow for me at this age, but I still try to go to all of his games.
I love matching him in soccer. He runs really fast.
I’ll be watching him and all of a sudden, he sprints over to the ball and aggressively goes after the ball.
When Finn is on the field, I can’t keep my eyes off of him. He’s the only kid I’m watching. The ball and play will be on the other side of the field, and my eyes are fixated on what Finn is doing.
We all do something like this. We tend to pay attention to the people or things we care about.
Think about the time when you purchased a car. Prior to buying that car, you never saw those cars on the street. Now that you own one, you notice it all the time. You could be on the highway and four lanes over going, in the opposite direction, you will notice a car similar to yours.
In dentistry, this happens to people as well.
People will have certain things about their teeth that gets noticed or pointed out to them, then all of a sudden, this will totally start to bother them.
A chip, a discoloration, a crooked tooth.
Now that they are aware of it, they notice this imperfection in a photo, in the mirror, on the reflection of a window. They see it all the time.
We tend to focus on the things that are important to us. Once it enters into our awareness, we tend to focus on it all the time.
