Change Your Perspective

Exploring the Blueberry Plains, Kennebunk

Out exploring! Oh Kansas here I go or maybe the wide open Savanna looking for a herd of Ellie's. Oh wait! I don't have ruby slippers. I'm just exploring the Blueberry Plains in my beck of the world!

Finally decided to check out a spot that I have passed my entire life, little did I know how beautiful it was. 

From time to time I do have to remind myself of the importance of letting go. The more that I can let go, the more that I can receive. By changing your perspective, the more that you can change your attitude and your life. It all comes down to the beliefs and what you do with them. Do you give those crazy thoughts too much attention or don't even bother with them any more.


Too often, we try to gain a clear perspective before it is time.

That will make us crazy.

We do not always know why things are happening the way they are. We do not always know how a particular relationship will work out. We do not always understand the source of our feelings, why we've been led down a particular path, what is being worked out in us, what we are learning, why we need to recycle, why we had to wait, why we need to go through a time of discipline, or why a door closed. How our present circumstances will work into the larger scheme of events is not always clear to us. That is how it needs to be.

Perspective will come in retrospect.

We could strain for hours today for the meaning of something that may come in an instant next year. 

Let it go. We can let go of our need to figure things out, to feel in control.

Now is the time to be. To feel. To go through it. To allow things to happen. To learn. To let whatever is being worked out in us to take its course.

In hindsight, we will know. It will become clear. For today being is enough. We have been told that all things shall work out for good in our life. We can trust that to happen, even if we cannot see the place today's events will hold in the large picture.

Today, I will let things happen without trying to figure everything out. If clarity is not available to me today, I will trust it to come later, in retrospect. I will put simple trust in the truth that all is well, events are unfolding as they should be, and all will work out for good in my life-better than I can imagine."
