The view is beautiful at the top.

Thursday, May 02, 2013



I have come to realize that a lot of life is about perspective. There are so many different ways to look at things, but when we're in the midst of "junk" in our lives, it's hard to see that silver lining in those clouds.

Here are some examples:



One of the things we used to do as kids is to go puddle stomping in the rain. It was so much fun!! I really need to go do that when it warms up some. It's such an invigorating feeling. If you never tried it, you should!!



Look at your problems from a different angle. If you're having a hard time with that, ask a trusted friend to help you. Sometimes people outside of the circumstances can see things a little more clearly & can give you some sound advice or a different perspective.



The times I've grown & matured the most in my faith & as a person are the times I've been through something really, really hard. As much as we hate going through the trials of life, those times are the best for making you better.



Even though life can be hard, it is still amazing.

Today: Find your amazing, or maybe do a little puddle stomping. No matter where you are in life, keep going because the view is beautiful at the top. emoticon

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

You are so right. Life is 98% attitude about what is going on. Our perceptions make all the difference in how we deal with everything. Thank you for the reminder.
