Lessons" and life events can cause your glasses (your view of life)
to "get dirty"
Being aware (mindful) of these can help you be conscious as situations arise. This can help
you keep "cleaner glasses", allowing you to better follow any life path that you
may have chosen.
Note: As a believer in positive
thinking, I believe the goal is to be able to identify (but don't
dwell on) any negative "roadblocks" or "potholes"
that may be hindering your positive direction. For once identified, you then
chose the positive actions or direction to take. Best yet, if you learn
about common "potholes" that you may not know about (see unknown
unknowns), you can be mindful and maybe prevent them in the first place.
Awareness of the following can help to prevent "foggy glasses":

truth, or that they may be providing false information. Maybe their glasses are foggy!
Be mindful that sometimes people project
without realizing it. They may think that other people think the same way
that they do, or that they know what other people are thinking.
Understanding psychological projection can be
helpful when searching for the truth.
Be mindful of the potential trap in automatically accepting hearsay
