Today’s inspiration is to look beyond what you see because beauty can be found in everything and everyone if you only change your perspective.
“Weed are flowers too, once you get to know them.” A.A. Milne
Have you thought about how everything in life revolves around perspective. Depending on what your circumstances are, if you look at them from a different perspective, you could change the entire outcome.
Think about what the definition of perspective is.
a particular attitude toward or a way of regarding something; a point of view.
If you look at a situation in your life from a pessimistic perspective, your outcome will likely have a negative outcome, however if you look at a situation from an optimistic view, you are likely to have a positive outcome.
My challenge to you is this, the next time you find yourself in a difficult situation, examine and evaluate every aspect of it. Examine how you are looking at it and evaluate where you can make the necessary changes that will change the outcome of how everything turns out.
If you tend to be a pessimistic person, consider working on how you look at your life. If you could take one small step at a time to change the view in which you look at your difficulties, you will be amazed at how much different everything will look.
My friend, take the weeds in your life and consider looking at them as the most beautiful flowers you have ever seen. Think about them in a field. You can look at a beautiful field covered in the yellow of buttercup flowers or a brilliant orange from the Indian paintbrush flowers, but think about how nice they would look if they were all over your lawn? No one who puts the effort into having a nice lawn wants to see weeds growing up in it, but those same weeds can make a plain field look majestic when they are growing all together.
My friend, everything in life revolves around a matter of perspective. Open your heart and your eyes to evaluate how you are looking at all the obstacles you may have. Consider looking for the brilliant colors of the weeds in your life and see how they will change you by changing your perspective in how you see them.
