“Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.”
― Marcus Aurelius
Today is cold, wet and windy. It’s beautiful.
The sky’s full of colour and motion, the rain splashing through leaves and into puddles, the breeze through the trees. These are the moments in life that we miss because we turn up our collars and turn off from the world as we rush to wherever we urgently need to be.
Yes the weather is cold and wet – that’s factual – yet by stopping for 5 minutes to appreciate what was happening, by changing my thinking and looking at it differently, I chose to enjoy it.
It’s not what happens in life that defines us, it’s how we approach it and the perspective we choose.
