Perspective

We don’t see things as they are.

We see things as we are.
— Anais Nin

With all the constant change of seasons that happens in our life, to keep things in perspective is the key.

Everything depends on the way you look at it.

Here is an example; Few days after my injury mum and I were talking about what happened, and I remember when she said that she thought that it's was a good thing that it happened close to her place, instead of somewhere around Peru or Bolivia, where I would not have had the same assistance.

When she said that we changed the situation by changing the thought. Whatever feeling we had that moment was replaced with a beautiful feeling of thankfulness.

The glass was half full at that moment. 

Perspective changes everything.

You can turn a unpleasant situation into something positive. Problems can turn into a solution. It makes you feel better and what seems like loss can be seen as opportunity just by changing the way you look at it. How you perceive the situation really matters and depending on what you focus on, it can bring reality into your life. 

For me, its much better and easier to keep things in perspective, to trust that there always will be a better and another way, to see things differently and in a way that lifts my spirit up, in a way that reminds me that whatever happens, my glass would still be half full.

The glass is half full. 

And it's a pretty beautiful glass

At least for now.
