What we know or think we know, what we see can change in a blink of an eye. Our perspective can change as we view the object from different angles, or as we learn more about a person, place or thing.
Perspective: the way in which objects appear to the eye, one's "pont of view", the choice of context for opinions, opinions, beliefs and experiences.
As we stepped out of Teresa's Resturant on Black Friday, I pointed at this building and said to Diane, that is where I worked in the early 90's. I checked the view finder and did not like what I saw. I changed the building by the way I viewed it..
The way the building looked changed with each few steps, even though it did not change and was the same building in every picture. The trick was In what I emphasized with my camera. I was changing the view . As I veiwed the photos, I thought this is just like life. Our lives change with how we view them, others change when we view them through their eyes or others eyes.
The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same. Carlos Castaneda
“If you nurture your mind, body, and spirit, your time will expand. You will gain a new perspective that will allow you to accomplish much more.” Brian Koslow
There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state to another. Alexandre Dumas
What we know about a person changes the way we view them, for bad or for good. If we meet someone that we have heard bad things about, we think they are what we heard, not what they are. We can be guilty of judging others because they look different, act different or by words we have heard from another person.
As we start into the 31 days until the year 2010, I would like to challenge myself and all that read this, to make an effort to view others with a new perspective.
Each morning we drive by a neighbors house and either the man or the woman is standing on the porch waiting for the bus to pick up the young man who is a foot taller than his parents or maybe grand parents. My husband makes the same comment each time. WHY do they stand out there with him? he is in his own front yard. today my answer was, We don't know them or him. maybe he has a disablity we can't see. Maybe they just love him a lot. We don't Know the Real Story.
