Perspective

We each have a different perspective of how we see the world, events, each other. Our perspective shapes our sense of self and our expectations making it so important to be continually aware of our perspective and to be open to viewing life from different perspectives.

How often have we seen opportunities for relationships and fun and work as too impossible, too high, too long, too wide, too scary, too hard? I’m a thinker and a planner. I like these qualities in myself because they have helped me make a lot of good decisions and helped me have a very rewarding, successful career. I have noticed, however, that sitting and thinking about, well everything, can immobilize me. You know that chair in my special little room in my house that I have shared with you? Well it provides me a very limited perspective of the world. And as I think about moving from it, all that it will take to accomplish my many goals and projects, well I can think myself into inertia. It seems funny that I can think myself into being tired before I’ve even moved. When I change my perspective to the other side of having accomplished a goal, I am energized. 

I guess I know what I need to do as soon as I publish this post!

  2. Lovely thoughts, Pat and what an adorable giraffe. Not much doubt that perspective affects the end result when it’s a mental battle. Keep up your resistance. 🙂
