    Pessimist Turning Back To An Optimist

    I guess I've gained a whole new perspective, people like me it's hard to trust in the future because its unpredictable and hard when you feel like you don't what what you CAN do for your future, but these hopeful dreams I've been having have kept me optimistic and trustful. And I...

    Sense And Sensibility

    I am so much more than the sum of my circumstances.But I cannot control how I am perceived by others.I have a sense of who I am, who I want to show to the world, who I want people to love.But sensibility suggests that I will be perceived by others from their perspective,and there...

    I Think So

    I like to stop every now and again and sort of look at my life and where I'm going, what I'm doing and so on. Losing sight of what matters most can happen to the best of us, putting your life back in perspective now and again can help you live better. I believe that.

    Perspectives and Truth

        Sometimes life is so confusing, and we cannot make sense of the details.    It seems to leave us with no choice, but to find conclusions in our own minds.    These conclusions often, for us, become our reality, and we cling desperately to...

    Snakes And Ropes

    When I find myself losing ground perceptually speaking, I often turn to the written word for comfort and guidance. And it always works, that is, I always find, or am directed (by the universe?) to that which I am in need of--usually a profound statement or story that helps me to...

    I Try

    But I have to admit, I don't always keep things in perspective. Sometimes, I fight the wrong battles, sometimes, I let small things bother me. I wish I was better at seeing the big picture and remembering the goal and not just worrying about the journey.

    Information Is Your Best Friend.

    My Personality Doesn't Lend Itself Well to Doing This

    Perspective - Tha Angles and Lines And, Still, the Overall View.

    Total loss occurs when focus is lost, distortion is when there is a perspective confusion, incongruity and impossiblity reign with imperspective views. Rationalize, verify, test, create.
