Why this picture? At a quick glance, do you the vibrant red petals or the decaying brown leaves surrounding it?
My glass used to be half-empty. I would focus on the negative things to avoid disappointment. I just recently started filling up my cup. It’s been two years now and this journey has boosted the process. So, what do I see?
I see the beauty in these fallen petals. This picture was taken near a wall on top of a mountain, at the castle ruins of Herrenberg. I almost passed by this pile of leaves and petals. I took a closer look and snapped a picture. When I got home, I took a another look and saw that there were trash around the pile. I cropped it so you can see what I see. Would I have paid attention to something like this before? Probably not.
Perspective is parallel to our choices. We are blessed to have the ability to choose. It’s what we choose to see, hear, and do that will make the difference.
