Perspective

Life’s a matter of perspective. Yet, we often forget this simple truth. Reality is but a choice, a construct of the mind.

You can decide what this world is all about. Is it beautiful? Ugly? Are you happy or sad? What about others? How are they? How would you describe them?

To describe means to define, and we all become prisoners of our definitions.

So choose your perspective carefully. You are what you choose to see in the world, for whatever defects and flaws you see in the world, the same will be reflectes out of your eyes.

    Profound.

  2. I enjoy reading that makes me stop to think afterwards, that makes me stop and evaluate my own self afterwards. This did just that.

    Thank you so much for pointing out what a cynic I am. Trying to change bit by bit.

  4. Indeed so….I fully agree. It is so important to make the time for considering alternate perspectives or other people’s perspectives

    Indeed, ” I don’t think of all the misery…”
    Nicely put. People should sometimes focus on the positive things in their lives not just negativity.
    Keep inspiring.

  6. WE can’t always choose what happens to us. We can choose how we react to it.

    Always a good reminder.

    Agreed, we have to look at the bright side of life. Yet, I cannot ignore misery and those who suffer because of our increasing injustice in this world. I think each one of us has to find a balance where there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.

  8. This is so true and sometimes so hard to put into words especially if you ever find yourself in a needless argument.
    You just to hold on to what’s positive in every situation. Thanks for writing !

    G. K. Chesterton wrote that the best fairy tales are where extraordinary things happen to normal people; sometimes it also makes for the best reality.

  10. Love that you share this Anne Frank quote, Cristian.
