Putting things in to perspective can help relieve stress and give us greater wisdom and understanding of situations in life. While flying and looking out the window every thing looks different. The piles of paper work on my desk, bills that need to be paid, or the floors that could be vacuumed do not seem to have the same importance at that moment. Obviously as our point of view changes so do the things that demand our attention.
It is good to be reminded about the power of our thought process and our view point and the impact they have on our well being. We can become stressed out thinking we don’t have enough time to take care of everything thing that we want to get done. It is true, we are right, and it is o.k.!
That may sound strange but it is also refreshing to be understand and be reassured we are not required to take care of everything our minds think about. There are many things we think we have to do, want to do, or really should do. Our thought process moves much quicker than our bodies can, therefore we will never be able to accomplish all the things we may desire.
By focusing and with due diligence we can accomplish certain things in life, and hopefully those which are the true priorities we need to take care of. At times we may even need to enlist the help of others along the way. With many distractions and shiny objects desiring our attention, it is important to make decisions that we know what we need to focus and complete.
In the midst of busyness, priorities, never ending to-do lists, I still desire to take time to communicate and be creative. That said, as a writer, there is one thing I know I can do on a daily basis. Capturing a moment in time, a thought, and a picture, translating them into this written form while still alive and animated, to share ideas with the hopes others will be encouraged and do the same.
