“The real act of discovery is not in finding new lands,
but in seeing with new
eyes.”

— Marcel
Proust


I
love this quote. It is so short and so full at the same time. How many times I
have got into a routine of seeing things only to become so blind to the
possibilities, or to the beauty that is there that I couldn’t yet
see.
 
Sometimes,
it might take a little break, or a period of refreshment, and something I think
that works better is looking at it from a different angle–or a new
perspective.
 
I
was watching a short little video the other day by John C Maxwell where he was
talking about perspective and saying that perspective is everything. We each
choose the perspective that we filter everything through and we may not realize
it, but we can choose to change that perspective.
 
One fast
way to change a perspective is to ask new questions. Here’s an example: ‘OK. I
see this still isn’t working and I’m not liking it still. I’m so tired of this
situation. It’s really dragging me down, draining my energy and spirit.’ Change
that to, ‘I’m wondering. . . what if there was a silver lining to this
situation? What might that be? What is good about this? What is right
about this? Does anyone benefit from this situation? Do I benefit from
it?’
 
The
grass is rarely greener on the other side, but we’ve got to stop looking at our
so hard that we no longer see any green. It’s there. We just need some new
eyes.

‘I SEE! I SEE! Said The Blind Man, As He Turned Around And Found A New
Perspective. . .
