oceanHave you ever asked yourself, what is another perspective on this, how can I look at this situation or person differently, what is another viewpoint I might take? Perspective is how we view the world or a particular situation or person, it’s our point of view, how we see things. I had an opportunity this morning to change my perspective. As I was walking in nature, I noticed how the humidity felt like a wet blanket that covered my body. I have asthma and humidity is not my friend. I felt like I was in the tropics, but where was the beautiful, blue ocean? What a great opportunity to change my perspective about the humidity that was drenching my body. So I asked myself, what’s another perspective I might take in regard to the humidity which makes it hard for me to breathe? How can I look at this differently I queried? What came to me quickly and effortlessly is the following. Here I am out in nature, one of my favorite places to be. I am enjoying the beautiful sights and sounds that live along the river, how fortunate I am! Exercise is beneficial for my body, mind and spirit and I enjoy exercising. I am physically able to walk at a pretty good speed and get my heart rate up. So many reasons to be grateful. Changing my perspective made the humidity a non issue instead of the focal point of my walk. I am so fortunate to be able to choose another perspective at any time, what a gift!

What about you? Is there a situation or person in your life which needs to be viewed in a different way? How can you change your perspective? How will changing your perspective serve you?

    How true. We can’t change events, but we can always look at them from another perspective and change how we respond to them.
