"Hit the reset button. Whatever happened yesterday, forget about it. Get a new perspective. Today is a new day. A fresh start begins now." ~ Germany Kent
Ever feel exhausted of the same old routine? Tired of doing the same thing repeatedly? I'm sure that each of us feels or has felt that way during these testing times. Even as things are starting to return to normalcy, we find it hard to adjust to our former normal routines. What one needs during such disconcerting times is a change of scenery, a "new perspective" to be precise.
According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the word 'perspective' means a mental view or prospect. Looking at a problem or situation from a different perspective can surely help bring about a solution or an understanding, especially in human emotions and relationships.
Suppose you have an important test the next day and all you can think about is "what if I fail?" Instead, why don't you think about "what if I succeed?"
Suppose you just had a terrible fight with your best friend about where to eat lunch. All you can think is "why is he so unreasonable?" when instead you could look at the situation through your friend's perspective, who could be just trying to help you experience something different and think "what if I listen to him and try something new today?"
The human brain works in mysterious ways which are frankly beyond our understanding. It is a fact that we merely know only 10 per cent of how it functions! According to science, the frontal lobe of our brain controls our thinking, memory & judgement. So why not condition it in a way that helps us see things from not just one but many positive and enlightening perspectives?
Life is all about new experiences and seizing the moment. Different perspectives and experiences make you more tolerant of change, whether good or bad. When you are in a fix, why not try something different? Something dangerous or exciting? Something from a whole new perspective? I promise you won't regret it.
What do you think? Does looking at things from a different perspective help in elucidating or rejuvenating a situation? Let me know in the comments and feel free to share your experiences! Time to shake up your life and find a new perspective! That is why you're here, right?
