Life is all in the perspective we take on it. - jlh

sailboatLife is all in the perspective we take on it. - jlh

Today is a day to look at our life from different and broader perspectives - a good day to look at our lives from a perspective of thankfulness for what we have and a perspective of wonder at our very existence and the magnificence of the world we live in.
the path
a quote from LIVE BOLDLY

Unexpected events can set you back or set you up. It's all a matter of - perspective.
- mary anne radmacher

Life can look different from a distance

Put some distance between yourself and whatever is concerning you. Distance in space or time always creates a new perspective.

Get up-close-and-personal
Life looks different when you really get involved. You wouldn't get to watch the bee on the yellow flower if you didn't look closely.

Look at Life in a Different Light

Shine a bright light on your issues, or turn off the spotlight and take a broader view.

Look from a Different Angle

Approach life from a new angle. Assume nothing.

Pretend You Just Got to America

We just don't see what is familiar. When we go to a foreign land we really SEE because we don't already ASSUME what will be there.
Pretend your community is a foreign land and really SEE it. SEE your blessings - pit-toilets and bicycle-trucks are not romantic.

See Life as Play

Who said that life has to be serious?

See How Blessed We Are

We have more comfort, more wealth, and better health than ever before in history or anywhere else in the world. If we are not happy, perhaps we should count our blessings.
To the right is a fairly average American home of 150 years ago - a time of short painful lives before antibiotics and anesthetics. To the left is a Peruvian home which the family shares with its business of brewing chicha (home made corn beer) and preparing guinea pigs for traditional celebrations.

Choose to See Beauty and Joy

Much in life can be seen as ugly or beautiful - it's our choice. Why would we choose to see any part of life as ugly?

Choose to Celebrate Life

Choose to view life from the perspective of Celebration. Celebrate family, celebrate friends, celebrate love, celebrate different perspectives, celebrate all of life.

  1. This set of quotes is awesome. Distance between what is concerning me tells me I don't always have to say yes,which helps lower the stress leve! I also like the idea of pretending to see everything for the first or last time.This puts a whole new perspective on everything.Thank you JL Huie!
