Life is what you make it - it's all perspective. Some things in life are about attitude; other things about fact; others are purely emotional.
Recently I've been doing a lot of thinking about perspective. I personally am just miffed that it's still SO hot & humid here in Charlotte. But then I realized - hey, I've got air in my car, home & office. So even though it's hot & humid as it can be outside, I don't spend much time out there - so it's all about perspective.
I had an experience this week where someone I barely knew made what I'd call an off-hand comment. Now it wasn't directed toward me, but later i started thinking about it & wondered IF she really was making that comment toward me. Now really, why would I think that? So I gave myself a good talking to about PERSPECTIVE. Honestly, she had no reason & truthfully IF the comment was made toward me, so what??
Most recently, after having lost this weight, I KNOW how much thinner I am, and was feeling pretty good about myself. But after being at the same weight for almost 2 month AND not having gained, I've started feeling BIG again. I saw a picture of myself from spring and I know I'm not that big any more. SO I think it's the stabilization that now I'm used to my new body! (By the way, I'm down 5 sizes - almost 6; and am planning on trying to lose another 15-20 pounds beginning my really strict diet again in October) SO, it's perspective, huh? Very interesting!
How's your perspective right now?
