Something new…

So…
You crave something different,
Something interesting,
Something exciting,
Something new!

You just need some change,
Something to shift!
You’re tired of this monotony!
You want to see the world!

How long will you hustle?
How long will you be patient?
“Something better is coming”.
-They say…

But, you’re starting to not believe it!
How much longer do you keep hustling for?
How many more days of being patient?
Nothing seems to be happening!

What are you doing wrong?

. . .

That’s what you’re doing wrong,
Looking at all those things;
The things that aren’t happening,
Making yourself feel worthless!

Instead you need to look at –
The things that ARE happening –
That are giving you reasons to keep hustling,
And, making you feel accomplished!

So, be an optimist!
Look at all the reasons why you’re hustling!
What is all this hustling teaching you?
What is all this patience teaching you?

Once you learn that,
You WILL Make It!

Two sides to everything…

Sometimes you just have to turn around and look behind you for a second.
It might change a lot more than you think!

. . .

Location of picture:

bridgeCortina Puclaro
50 minutes from La Serena, Chile

. . .

While taking the picture above, I was drawn to the lake because the sun was shining directly on it and it seemed like the perfect picture of a lake in the middle of the mountains.
I didn’t really think of taking a picture on the other side because the sun was shining directly at my camera and the view didn’t seem as good, but I took one just to see what it would look like and, it actually came out amazing.
I, then, realized that the sun setting behind the mountains, the sun flair on my camera and, the river going through the mountains was a really good picture and I was glad I decided to take both pictures.

. . .

So, why am I sharing this story?
Well, after taking a picture of both sides of this bridge, I realized that it was kind of a metaphor for life.
You see, sometimes we can get stuck just looking at one side of things in our life, and we are happy with it because we think it’s a great view.
But, it’s not until we turn around that we realize that we should have turned around much earlier because there was so much more amazing things waiting for us, and all we had to do was turn around and shift our perspective.

And, it’s really quite a simple concept.
You just turn around to shift your focus, and watch your perspective change.
And, that small shift in your perspective could change your whole world.

One simple shift in your focus
could change your entire perspective of your life!

Thanks for reading! I hope this post inspired you to change your perspective every now and then; and, if you’d like to read more about perspective, check out this post: Perspective… / A Day in Valparaiso, Chile!

Perspective… / A Day in Valparaiso, Chile!

“Perspective changes everything!”

. . .

So, recently I took a trip to Valparaiso, Chile & I had the best day there, just wandering the city! Here’s an “itinerary” of that trip:

1- I took the bus (1 hour) to Valparaiso alone, and didn’t get lost once!

2- I explored and wandered the beautiful city of Valparaiso!

3- My eyes were truly open to everything I saw today!

4- I was completely present in the moment today, which made my adventuring, wandering & exploring so much better!

5- Like the title & the picture hint: I got perspective thrown at me in multiple ways today!

. . .

Perspective: The appearance of things relative to one another, as determined by their distance from the viewer.

So, the first picture you saw at the top of this page is a view standing from the top of a staircase in Valparaiso.
And, the next picture you saw at the top of this page is a view of the same staircase, but this time, standing right in front of it (instead of above it).

. . .

You see, this is why perspective is such an important concept because things are always different from where someone is standing.
Just like in life. People see things differently because they’re in different places in their own lives, this means that everyone has a different perspective about some/most things.

Nothing is the same for everyone because we all perceive things differently, which means that we all experience life differently.
That’s perspective! Being different & accepting different perspectives of the same things.

The picture from above the staircase could be someone’s view of that staircase for their entire life. Whereas, the picture in front of the staircase could be someone  else’s view of it for their entire life. But, this doesn’t mean that they aren’t both seeing the same staircase, they are just looking at it from where they are currently standing.
And, most people would be fine with just seeing it from their perspective for their entire life, but, what I’m trying to encourage you to do after reading this post is: to always try and look at things from different perspectives because you never know what you could discover, just by shifting your focus.

“Don’t stay in the same spot for your whole life
(don’t stay at the top of the staircase for your entire life)!
Change your perspective
(come down & look at it from a different perspective)!”

Change your PERSPECTIVE! It might just change EVERYTHING!

 

Thanks for reading!
I hope this post inspired you to search for a new perspective in your life!

P.S. Valparaiso is truly a beautiful city, & if you’re ever in Chile, I highly recommend taking a trip here to see this beautiful city for yourself! You won’t regret it, it will definitely help you understand the concept of perspective!
