Life is amazing. We all have our OWN unique filter – perception. What might be true to one person may not be so for another. So here is the thing…. In life sometimes our journey isn’t always easy, and we have choices on how we are choosing to perceive the situation and not only that, how we are choosing to either react and/or act.
Look at this picture. There is so much to see, yet everyone may be drawn to certain aspects of the picture: the water, the sunset, the angles or the different compartments, if you will, made by the trees branches….
So, where am I going with all of this? Simple. When in situations that may not be so wonderful and or comfortable… stop, breathe, and then truly take the time to take in the situation. Feel it, look at it, and listen to what your heart is saying. Then, and only then, make the decision of how you are choosing to react and/or act.
Some people look at hardships and see losses. I only see opportunities. Why… the things we have been through in our life have been opportunities of self-discovery and choices on shrinking into self or blossoming out of self. Through the blossoming of self, we have been opened to new possibilities and outcomes. And in being open, we are now in a space of Conscious Co-Creation, if you will, with the Universe… saying, “Yes, I am ready for more.” Not only that, you never know who has been waiting to hear your pearls of wisdom. We are all teachers for each other.
Expand your horizons and be willing to see and listen to others’ points of view- their perspectives… It is a very diverse world out there with many paths of wisdom. If you automatically close your mind to another’s point of view, then whether you like it or not, you are missing out on some amazing golden nuggets and “AHA!” moments. There is NOTHING gained in opposition, however there is LOTS gained in being open-minded and neutral in a moment, so that from there you get to learn something and then choose what to do with information.
I love learning from all types of people. I love the different angles and perceptions. It expands my mind, body and spirit. It challenges me and makes me discover new things, new ways, and new people. It also pushes me out of my comfort zone. And, it is ONLY when we are out of our comfort zones that we truly grow. That is where much divine wisdom lies: outside the circle of status quo.
Stretch yourself, be positive, and know that you can do anything you set your mind to!

So with you, Carly, we are victims to our perception, glad you sent this gentle reminder to open our and broaden our horizons – thanks!
Thanks for the comments Barbara… Yes it is always up to us and our own unique perceptions…
All so true. Easy to do when you are not stressed however very easy to forget to do when stressed. However with more knowledge and practice, when something stressful comes up this tactic would work well.
Thanks Miriam for the comments and yes learning, and then using the tools more and more makes this easier…
I agree – Life is amazing! full of changes…ups and downs…it’s a learning process and I love it!
Yes Indeed Klaudia Life most certainly is full of Ups and Downs… and Like You I LOVE the Journey…
For me the changes are drastic and most of the time feel lost and don’t know how to get out. My life changed 360% when my husband passed away and I don’t know how to move ahead.
Rosa, Blessings on your Loss… And Understand what You are saying based on My husband committed suicide. What I can say is there is NO shame in asking for help or going to get help… If You can’t afford it, there are also plenty of Organizations out there to help… It literally is first accepting what is… Next truly wanting to move ahead and then taking Action of SOME Kind each and every day… Going outside in nature, being around other people etc… I truly hope You find what is out there to help guide you back to a life full of Joy… It is attainable.
Love the image and I see new adventures for them sailing away! Not everyday can be the same either, some days are dealing with old adventures.
I hear You Lisa and Yes I Love the image the minute I saw it…
