Perspective

perspective (pəˈspɛktɪv) — n

1. a way of regarding situations, facts, etc, and judging their relative importance

2. the proper or accurate point of view or the ability to see it; objectivity: try to get some perspective on your troubles

 

Sometimes all you need is a different perspective to clearly see. Last weekend I deep cleaned my kitchen – which included climbing on top of chairs to clean up high and hidden areas. What looked clean and just fine from my normal vantage point was incredibly dirty and greasy. Ick. But it made me think.

This same principle of perspective is true in other areas of our lives. What may look good or bad at initial glance, or even over a period of time – when seen from a different perspective may indeed not be what it first appeared to be. Sometimes, the new perspective opens your eyes to something you should have seen sooner. It could offer insight to something you need to fix, something you need to embrace, something you need to let go of, or something you need to realize about yourself.

Don’t run from different perspectives. While sometimes it may reveal something you think you don’t want to know – whatever it is that is revealed is an opportunity to grow. Embrace that opportunity and strengthen yourself.
