It's What and How You See
Updated: Feb 15, 2020
I was out with the camera yesterday, with one prime lens (a lens that has just one focal length only, where a zoom lens covers a wider range of lengths). I was almost forced to look at the scenery at the lake differently, because of the type of lens I chose.
I ended up looking at more intricacies in the area- the ground and what was at any given place, a few signs, ropes and posts, and I realized I was leaning toward light and shadows at any given area where I was looking. And my mind went to black and white.
The popular Thoreau saying, "It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see." rings in my mind here. Sometimes we have to make the best of what we have, choose to look at things differently and see them from a different perspective, and roll with it. Don't get trapped in wanting something different because you feel it will be "better". (Better can be so dangerous, but that's a different blog). Don't get trapped into wanting more, because you will truly miss what is right in front of you.
Sometimes we just need to change our perspective a bit, and our world will change.
I love my motto: change your perspective; change your life.
It really applies to all. But sometimes that can be tough to do. lol
Make the best of what you have, right here, right now. "How can I keep this simple?" "How can I see this differently?" "What would God want me to do, here?" "How can I give this to God?" "What is right?" "How can I make this lighter, instead of the heaviness it carries?"
Enjoy today, and make the most of what you have, with where you are, in the way you are able.
It just may change your life.
