    My Personality Doesn't Lend Itself Well to Doing This

    I have the type of personality that can let things get out of perspective so easily - mostly toward the romantic side of things or the positive side of things - that rose-colored glasses syndrome I have had since birth! I am also a very passionate person and get excited and...

    Then It Hit Me...

    I need to change my perspective. I am not waking up in the morning to go to a job I wish I could quit but I am waking up in the morning to work on my business. The job is inconsequential, the meaning behind my day is my work I put toward my business and making it successful and...

    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...

    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...

    I find having a "global view,

    " a perspective on life as a whole, as it were, and where I believe things fit helps me a lot, though I have to say there are days on which the immediate overwhelms me to the point that I find it hard to keep things in persepective, with respect to that bigger picture.

    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.

    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...

    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.
