Changes in perspective

Change is all around us. From daily responsibilities at work to simple occurrences such as the weather (which is always unpredictable in the great Queen City.) Whether you view that change as uplifting or impeding is based solely on your perspective.

You can choose to resist the change, fight it with all your might and curse the unfamiliar because it forces you to adapt. Or you can choose the route that will be more rewarding in the long run because it will likely happen regardless: you can rewrite the script, accommodate to the changes and do your best to prepare for the unknown. 

You can’t always foresee changes that will happen; they catch you off guard and often sneak up when you least expect it. But your attitude is something that is always in your control. Don’t view the unknown as a frightening change, view it as an opportunity to grow and mature into a better version of yourself.



Dig up hope

It’s strange how unintentionally digging up the past can make you question the present.

Why didn’t it turn out the way it was ‘supposed’ to? I thought for sure I would have certain people in my life, now they’re just a distant memory.

I know this may not be the most advanced adjective to use, but digging up the past can really just make you feel sad — that things didn’t turn out how you anticipated, that the bubble burst and reality was so far off from anything your naive mind could have come up with.

But more than all of that, digging up the past can also make us extremely hopeful if we choose to alter our perception in such a way. Hopeful that the plan God has laid out for us is much grander than the circumstances we’ve experienced thus far, that at any given moment our life could change drastically for the better.

But most importantly, hopeful that maybe sometimes a crummy past is exactly what you need to guide you to a beautiful future.
