Perspective Changes Everything.
Feel like you’re stuck in life’s rut and just can’t shake it? Maybe you need to take a breath, back up and view it from a different perspective. Consider these five suggestions to get you back on track.
1 Wake up before the sun comes up to enjoy the morning.
The peacefulness of witnessing the daybreak can actually influence your entire day. Its affect slows your natural rhythm which can in itself invite a unique perspective.
2. Take a walk through a cemetery.
Notice the variety of lifespans as you’re reminded of your own mortality. That’s just the way it is…no one knows how much time they have left to spend with their loved ones. What we do know is we can refocus our priorities on what’s important for the here and now…the wonderful moment we live in.
3. Watch a river/creek flow.
Instant therapy, that money can’t buy, is delivered through the sound of a rolling river or a flowing creek. It has a unique power to hypnotize and dissipate anything that stands in the way in order to give clearance to a new perspective.
4. Write a bucket list.
If this doesn’t give new perspective, nothing will. It forces us to search our soul as we remove the cobwebs that have been smothering our dreams for too long. As we write the list, we rekindle the “law of attraction,” fueling our imaginations that we never outgrow. Let the new perspective begin.
5. Take a stroll down memory lane…literally.
If you can, go to a place you would frequent as a child and just hang out and soak up some memories for a while. If you’re too far away from your hometown try bringing out some old photos.
Let your thoughts run wild as you replay your childhood in your mind’s eye. Allow the moment to rekindle your sense of purpose and perspective. If you allow it…it will happen.
100 years to live? maybe.
