It’s All About Perspective

It’s funny how things may appear one way from a certain angle.  If we are willing to adjust our perspective, we might have a completely different view.  Just a thought.  :)

    Oh too absolutely true!! I do forget all the arrows and stuff coming my way every day. The Lord does keep me and protects me and I know that, but this was a wonderful visual!

      I received this is an email a couple years ago, and I think about it all the time. I try to focus on what is going right rather than the other stuff. That’s not to say that I don’t miss the boat on a regular basis – but I’m always trying! Hugs to you my sweet friend! :)

    Thanks for posting this! We all need reminders about this subject, on a daily basis. We let so much get in the way (in terms of thought and perception) of our personal intentions and it’s nice to step back, if only for a moment, to recharge ourselves with a more positive perception in regards to not just our present experience but our whole umbrella of thought. Smiles, as always, to you…

    This is so right. If you always worry about the bad things in life you miss out on all the good things. Staying positive and having a different outlook really helps.

      That reminder was for me, too. :). How are you doing honey? I have been wondering if you had been able to find some level of peace with the incident the other day.

        You’re so thoughtful.
        I have moved to the anger phase. Thinking of the fact that our preschool children play in that very space and that they were just 5 minutes from going out, makes me sick to my stomach. She could have taken someone else with her.
        Each day brings a little more perspective. Thank you for thinking of me. :)

        I guess so :) Yay!
        I’m just going to walk through the process and not fight it.

        I think that sounds absolutely perfect. If I don’t talk to you before then, have a beautiful Easter. :) Jo
