it’s all in perspective…

While editing/clearing out photos yesterday I came across these images from a trip to California last January.  I love the starkness of the black and white shots from Yosemite and they made me think about the lens through which we all see the world. It’s all in perspective.  We can freely choose our perspectives and just one slight tweak in how we see things could change the course of our whole day, week or lives.  Look at the difference in these images.  How do they make you feel?

What if you looked at a challenging situation (or person) in your life with an ever so slightly, tiny bit different perspective?

I am trying this and WOW can it open up some different options.  Anything that might open up other possibilities seems worth exploration to me.  I highly recommend giving it a shot.  Hey, nothing to lose except hardwired resentment and outdated narratives right?

Brene brown lillibridge quote

Her TED talk about VULNERABILITY is just remarkably insightful. I would be thrilled if her talk or books could help you or someone you love in any way. Her premise is that life is better for you and everyone around you if you can be more vulnerable, open up, share and don’t manage your story so closely. This is where we make connections that make our lives better. It isn’t quite that simple but that’s the idea, so here’s a link to her site which gets you to all of her books and videos and training programs, blog and so much more.
