A New Perspective

Sometimes we get so wrapped up
in our perpetual way of seeing things,
we lose the ability to see potential, to open to surprise,
to find a new way of interpreting what is.

We become so comfortable with the stories
we tell ourselves about our lives
and the way things work
and why things happen
and who's to blame
that we forget they're just stories.

If the old ones don't fit,
we can create new stories.

What things in your life do you need to see
through new eyes?

Now's the time.
Happy New Year.
