Sometimes, or I should say, many times, all we need is a little perspective.  Stop, step back, BREATHE, and take another look at what has been plaguing you.   We get tunnel vision, and all you see, focus on, and harp over, is that obstacle in your way, or the pain in your side.  Stop, look away, look around you, and then look back, and try to assess the situation again.  It’s much more difficult to see a solution during an issue or problem, or obstacle is occurring to you, while you are in the situation.  You become engulfed, almost suffocated by the issue and problem that is plaguing you.  This is why you need stop, take a deep breath, and attempt to look at it from the outside in.  Try to see the situation through another’s eyes, through another point of view, through another perspective.  This can shine a much different light on the issue than you had been focusing on.  You may even be able to figure out a solution to your problem, looking from the outside in.  Another prospective, can give you the answer you were looking for.

Put it into perspective, is that behemoth mountain really that, or is it just a mole hill blown way out of proportion?  Sometimes we need a little reminder that molehills and anthills are just that, and  not Mount Everest.  I leave you with a scene from Men In Black, which demonstrates exactly how important perspective really is, because your reality could be someone else’s dream.


“I’m not strange, weird, off, nor crazy, my reality is just different from yours.” ~ Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass
