This morning while walking the seashore I noticed the birds and planes flying through the sky. Depending on my angle the bird and plane could look the same size. A plane looks so small against the clouds yet it is a giant machine. Then I thought about being in a plane and looking out the window… the cities become small and distant like a fake or toy Lego land. As a photographer I love to capture these images, and play with how we see things.
This led to the idea of PERSPECTIVE! How lucky we are to be able to change our perspectives. We can go outside take a walk. Go to the beach, or work on an art project. We can even change our mindset or mood with a couple breaths. We really have a great power to be able to shift our perspectives.
They key word is CHANGE it up! MIX it up! SHAKE it up! We have to move out of our narrow mind or shake up our stiff body or try on a new idea. A moment of discomfort can actually be the impetus for positive change. I encourage you to switch something around today. Maybe brush your teeth with your other hand or sit in a different chair than you normally do, go to a new restaurant or shop you’ve never been to, take a walk in nature, get out your camera or phone and start snapping.
Tell me how it goes…?
